Reunion-Arts-Field-Birthday-Race Day

My Reunion-Arts-Field-Birthday Day, or more commonly known as Sports Day, was yesterday . About a month ago my co-worker told me that the Schools Sports day was coming up on November 22, and it would be best if I attended. Unfortunately, I already had plans in the afternoon, but I was more than happy to make an appearance in the morning. As the day approached it became apparent that sports day wasn’t really just about playing tug-of-war and having some foot races. It was about commemorating the school’s 60th birthday, it was a reunion for previous students, it was an art exhibition, and it was a field day, ALL IN ONE. The day dawned early and required a quick trip to Starbucks to bring a smile to this English teacher’s face, but the sun was out and so I was ready for whatever sports day brought me. It turned that the day consisted almost entirely of be wrangling 1st graders and taking pictures.

The kids did a couple dances for everyone. This picture was taken right before the kid on the right kicked the drum that the man is holding, and it went flying across the track.
