On Your Mark, Get Set...

After a day of naps, conversations and opening seemingly non-ending totes filled with presents, it was time to introduce Papa and Nana to Field Days!  This went about 150% better than last year.

We hadn’t thought through how wonderful it would be to introduce our parents to so many in our Addis community. It was such a blessing!

The girls chose to do every race they could, here is the beanbag race. Field Days are two solid days of festivity and community.

Getting ready for the 3-legged race.  We could have probably practiced this one a bit more, hilarious.

And because, my dad was there, we also joined the daddy daughter race in a fun twist. It was 50 meters, how hard could it be?

My dad was an amazing sport and at 25 meters I was questioning my abilities.

Friends ran by us, daughter is 13 and they started late.

Awesome!! Loved this. Glad girls were eager to do all races rather then trying to pull their legs to do just one or two. Love the daddy daughter race.
