2010 Homeschool Track Meet

Last week Andrew and Noah participated in the 2010 Homeschool Track and Field day at Hope College track. I think they were overwhelmed with all the people! There were over 200 kids there from age 3-14. Now they know what to expect for next year. Their events were the 50 yard dash, obstacle course, broad jump, horsie relay, and tennis ball throw.

Here's Andrew. I think he's getting ready to do the broad jump.

Andrew with his group and "big person" leader getting ready to do the tennis ball throw.

Gearing up for the 50 yard dash. Its hilarious watching these kids run. They haven't grasped the fact that they are supposed to run as fast as they can so they kind of lollop along, watching everyone else at the same time.

Joel found a friend and a spare tennis ball.

Noah with his ribbons. He received one for participation and a 3rd place ribbon for the only event he would participate in, the tennis ball throw.

Andrew, waiting to see if he got any ribbons. I think he's getting a little anxious. There were 5 boys in his group and 3 of them got the majority of the ribbons.

But he placed 3rd in the broad jump and got a red popsicle! I think he had fun and it was good for him to be around other kids. There were a lot of homeschool kids from church there also and it was a beautiful day! Looking forward to next year.
