Track & Field Day

Yesterday the home school group in Grande Prairie and area had a track and field day. There were at least 70 kids. Some of the events included running long jump, ball throw, and several track races. The kids had a blast and want to attend next year.
Chloe in her 50 meter race. She did very well and loves to run. She has always been able to out run Russell. I ran beside her to keep her going.
Her first ribbon and very proud.
Russell pondering his strategy for his race. He is more of a thinker than a doer and he did not want to run but I told I would run with him.

This was the 100 meter race. He also did a 200 meter run which he felt was too much.

Finally he got a ribbon. That helped him to pick up the pace.

The kids thought the relay race was fun. Chloe's team came in third and Russell's team came in first in their race.

Enjoying a popcicle after a fun day in the sun with friends. These other kids in the picture live 4 miles south of us and they like to play together.
Today we did a tour of the airport and Thursday we go to a chicken farm. I just found out about this home school group. If we attend all the activites we will be busy. There are usually at least 1 field trip a month and sometimes more. I want to plan one for John Deere which should be fun.

That's my Chloe - running away with a smile on her face! Russell will get used to socializing and participating.

What a great opportunity to get together with other kids and have some fun. Looks like the weather was perfect for the day as well. Congrats Russel and Chloe on you wins!
