Sports Day 2014

by mendibpng

IMG_4380Sports day here in Ukarumpa is a community event. We went to watch Josiah (9th grade) do track and field events, while also catching up with friends. I feel that participating in community events helps ease the pending transition a bit for all of us.

I enjoyed watching the team events the most!
IMG_4927Many of the younger kids got into the spirit and cheered for their sibling’s teams (Alpha is Red, Beta is Blue). Noah (grade 6) and friends enjoyed painting their faces!IMG_5003Ellie and her fourth grade friends sold frozen juice pops to raise money for their girl’s club. It was a low parental effort (all we had to do was transport the freezie pops) and the girls had so much fun!IMG_5322After the high school events finished, the rest of the community had a chance to participate in 4×100 (and other) races. Our twins Jenny Beth (above) and Jacob (below) LOVED being able to run!IMG_5356
