Track and Field

We spent a fun afternoon in the sun with our first graders at Track and Field Day.  Ricky and Greta had a great time participating in all sorts of activities from hurdle races to balloon toss to seeing how many marbles they could move from one bucket filled with water to another…using their toes, to their favorite activity of all, the basketball dribble around cones(because their dad was the volunteer at this station!!).  Peter was a great cheerleader for his brother and sister.  By the way, last night was the first night that he didn’t have a fever at bedtime!  He is doing much better and getting back to his old self again!!

Here are some action shots of Ricky throwing lawn darts…I think he is such a natural athlete!  He did great in all the events keeping right up with all his typical-developing peers!

Peter needed a break from all the Track and Field excitement and headed over to the school playground for a while!

Temperatures were in the 80’s and these two boys were really overheating!  Sounds like close to 90 degrees for later today…can you believe it…this is Minnesota!!!  Have a great day and thanks for your prayers and concern for Peter!
