The Track Meet

The runners marched on to the field to the Olympic song. The yellow group is Aaron's group. (7 year old boys) Aaron signed up to run the 800m and the 400m.
The green group is Martin's group. (10 year old boys)
Martin signed up to run hurdles, the 100m dash, and the 400
You can see Aaron on the right side of the picture getting ready to run the 800m which is about a half mile.
We discovered during the week of Runner's Camp that Aaron's strength is in distance running. He ran the 800m in only 3 minutes and 44 seconds! He won a 2nd place ribbon in his age group!

He won a 5th place ribbon for the 400 m.
Martin got participation ribbons in some events, he got 5th place in the 400, and 3rd place in the shot-put. Rosalie and Jonathan ran the sibling race and each of them got participation ribbons too.
We had a super fun week of learning track and field events while also studying the truth of God's Word. They can't wait to go back next year!
