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.
Coming into Daddy’s arms at the finish line.
Cheering on friends (and moms who ran alongside).
Jon and girls took a 2nd in their heat for Daddy Daughter race.
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.
They smoked us.
A field day we will all remember. :)
