Samantha's Field Day

Home Up


    Samantha's grade had their field day activities on Friday, May 22nd. Her classroom was divided into three groups: red, white, and blue. Sam was on the red team this year. Drew, Jayden, and I attended (Tara was stuck at work during her "busy season") along with Grandma Terry and Marissa. Tyler was selected to help out the younger grades at the basketball activity. Samantha did pretty well at most of the events, even coming in first in the limbo contest (in a three-way tie). Her team had some successes as well, and she had fun - that is the most important thing, anyway. Enjoy the pictures!

Samantha's School Field Day

Tyler was selected to help out with the field day, giving directions to the kids at the basketball event. Here he is shooting baskets while waiting for the field day to begin.

Sam's class ran the relay race twice for some reason. Here she is taking a handoff from her teammate.

Sam hauling tail during the relay race. Her team had a lengthy lead during both races, but their last two runners were a little on the slow side.

Tyler giving the ball to Sam for her chance at a shot. It looks as if he is playing defense on her in the picture, but it didn't really appear that way in real life. Tyler's job was to chase down rebounds and give the kids the ball to see how many baskets they could make in 60 seconds. Sam's team tied for first in this event.

This event required the kids to run to one end and fill a cup with water and then return to dump it into a container. Once a team filled their container to the line, they won. Here Sam is taking off to get her cup filled.

Sam got her cup of water, covered it with her hand, and ran back to dump it into their container.
