our {family} field day

As a child, I loved field day at school! If I had to think of why, I can only guess that subconsciously,
field day officially marked the end of the school year = beginning of summer!!

Fast forward a few decades, as a home schooling family, the official beginning of summer vacation often gets blurred among the elusive last  remaining workbook pages.
This year I really wanted to mark a definitive "end of the school year".

So, we officially celebrated our family's first annual field day! While I had to push aside all the crafty, D.I.Y. ideas that naturally sprang to mind, my sincere desire was to simply create a memorable experience with the ones I love most.










  
Our day was a complete blast!!
Wheelbarrow races, three legged race, archery, javelin throwing, discus throwing, potato sack race, complete with a balloon toss which ended up as an all out water fight!
