On Tuesday, our homeschool group had their very own version of the Olympics! Instead of our normal gym day, we all met at a local park for the Olympic events. We had a really good turn-out and the kids seemed to have a very good time. There were field events and races in which to participate. I know Joy especially enjoyed herself as she was really into the Summer Olympics and watching it on TV.
The games began in normal Olympic fanfare with the passing of the torch! The kids spread out completely around the track at the park. The "torch" was run along by one and passed along to another. The last little guy to run the torch to our resting spot (Mrs. Kim that coordinated this whole event) was little Warren!
Here's Joy participating in the discus throw: (We thought this picture was so funny...it looks like her braid was attached to the frisbee!)
And in the soccer kick:
Here she was doing the shot put....what a face!

And running one of the races....
Joy loves babies....She tells me that when she gets married, she's having six kids and she's never going to move out of this house with her dad and me and that they'll live upstairs and I'll help her give them great birthday parties! I told her that was perfectly fine with me...as long as her husband has a good job! :)
Here she is holding Noah....and that's Riley (Noah & Riley are sisters and friends of ours). Sometimes she'd rather just be holding or playing with a baby rather than playing!
And here's a picture of the whole gang (well..all the kids:
There will be an award ceremony for the winners next Tuesday at gym....the gold, silver, and bronze place winners! And of course, everyone was a winner for participating and having fun....so all will get a participation award!
