Fun at Field Day

Monday’s Field Day for grades 3-5 was a beautiful, cooperative, fun-filled extravaganza of 17 stations through which all students rotated. Perfect weather, a visit from the Westminster Wildcat, plenty of water (for drinking and spraying — see photos below), Pero’s Pizza for lunch, and a sno-cone for dessert = Best day ever.

Indeed.

Indeed.

Don't let it touch the ground! (Thanks for the visit, Wildcat!)

Don’t let it touch the ground! (The Wildcat looks concerned. Will the cube float away?)

Floating...

Floating…

Please come back...

Water adds happiness to any relay.

The evolution of the water balloon toss. The two Fifth Grade boys in the foreground were the champions. As you scroll down, look for balloons high in the air, fewer and fewer partnerships still in the game, and finally the small red balloon rolling along the ground in the final shot, when it met its demise.

And finally, the elegantly simple yet highly entertaining water-squirting and blindfold-wearing station. Pure joy.
