Field Day

Field Day, May 12, 2017, 10:30 a.m.

From Daddy: One day in the Spring, near the end of the school year, is Field Day for his elementary school. All kids converge to Sunset Rec Center, gather and snack, and then rotate to various activity stations. There seemed to be seven or eight stations, and each class played at four of them. His class had a basketball challenge

a flag ball-capture challenge against another third-grade class (which his class won three times in a row; I’m not sure why the other class had no success)…

…a game of tag where kids would run across an open field to safe bases, avoiding being tagged by some adults, and finally a team challenge shooting bouncey balls into trash cans from various spots.

The main event were relay races simulating a Dragon Boat. The winner of the third-grace Dragon Boat race

…was his class!

What a fun day!

Afterward, we had an impromptu video game play date and pizza dinner plus ice cream dessert with friends!
