Mills Haven Elementary Sports Day

On Friday I got to go back to Mills Haven Elementary and volunteer for the day.  It was the school's annual Sports Day!  The kids had so much fun participating in each event and I had a bunch of fun helping out and watching.  I was on the "Sponge Relay" so only got to see them do that event.  Here are a some pictures and a few videos of our day:

  Zach with his team the Supersonic Blueberries
 Abby with her team the Green Eggs and Ham
 At the opening ceremonies the teachers challenge the kids to a relay race.  Here's Zach cheering the teams on.  Here's a video of some of the relay:

After the opening ceremonies we went outside to participate in 9 different events.  Events such as hurdles, football toss, mini golf, sponge relay and more.

One of my first groups was the Supersonic Blueberries!

Here's a video of their cheer:

 And Go!!!
 Check out the speed and power from the boy!

Here's a video of Zach and Kevin racing:

It was then time for lunch. Zach had to head back to daycare for the afternoon to make room for the afternoon Kindergarten class so I ate with Abby's class.  Oh loud!!!  After lunch we went outside to play a bit.
