Field Days 2018

A highlight for our year is Field Days where we are a part of a homeschool program at an international school in Addis Ababa. While our girls aren’t naturally track and field girls, the food, relationships and 30 minutes of family fun races make all two days worth it.

Watching the toddler races, Miss T and Tiger had already ran their race with much joy and a bit of confusion.

An added bonus with Grandpa and Grandma in our cheer squad!

Getting the Littles off the field. After their race, they kept sneaking through the flags onto the track.

Tiger and I tried to do the Mother-Son race, which is where the moms steer their boys, wheelbarrow style down the field. He was definitely the youngest competitor and when everyone else crossed the finish line and we still hadn’t crossed the 10 m mark, we decided to run together instead.

So fun to have Grandpa and Grandma cheering on our team.

We loved to cheer on our girls and were so proud of them for persevering, stretching themselves and smiling as they ran.
