Off to the Races

Saturday was the day for the kids’ relay race.  Our team looked awesome in their freezer-paper stenciled tee shirts, even if we didn’t win the tee-shirt contest.   

Here is E. in her part of the race, paddling.  This was probably the toughest part of the race, since the kids had only a few chances to practice in the kayaks prior to race day.  E. did great, though, apart from getting a bit tangled up with one of the other racers who couldn’t control his boat.

A. was in the obstacle course part of the race with one of her best friends.  They had a ton of challenges, including piggy back race, wheelbarrow race, army crawl, basketball shoot, rock wall, balance beams, hurdles and tire flip.  The girls had a ton of fun!  Here is E. dodging through a slalom course:

And all the girls together running for the finish line.  I was glad I had the accidental foresight to make the shirts bright pink, because it really helped me find the girls in the midst of the crowd.  We had a lot of fun doing this race!  The kids are already planning their team to do it again next year!
