Northampton's field day

Yesterday was Field Day at Parker's school for the 4th graders. He had a blast! By the time it was over, he had been in a tug-of-war, played on the big bouncy-toys, run races, and participated in water events (relay-like races to fill a bucket with water from a sponge and from a cup!). They were all dirty, wet, and tired -- and happy.

In the first picture, Parker and his friend Ian are showing me their class's sign, indicating that they are on the team from Mrs. Wells' class called the Wild Cats.

In the second picture, Parker is running back to his team's bucket with a cup full of water.

In the third picture, he is leaving the starting line for the 50m dash.
