"Field Day"

(by the John Taylor Trio) Field Day - Rosslyn

Field Day by John Taylor Trio on Grooveshark

We had Field Day at The Warehouse the other night! After Bible study on Monday morning, we were divided into four teams. Based on the color of our team, we came up with names, logos, & cheers. We also designed shirts and made a few more for the extra students who would show up on Wednesday night. I wish I had thought to take pictures of each team's shirts, but I'm a failure at being a photographer! I took a couple of pics where you can sorta see a couple of them...

Team Old School:


Purple Posse:


My team was the Red Hot Chili Peppers, & you'll catch a glimpse of our shirts in some of the following pictures. The blue team was the Glittery Bhulks {ya, I don't get it either!} Most of their shirts had a glittery "B" in an upside down triangle, and they wore capes made out of plastic table cloths!


We played all sorts of random field day games...





I didn't get pictures of Blind Volleyball, Tug-of-War, or the Grand Tamale (relay). But I did get a shot of these silly girls "Tebowing" after a victory...


& me with my baby girl:


Our team only won 2 out of 6 events, but we won the prize for the best cheer!

{yes, that's the prize!}

& here's a little video of our winning cheer:


Lessons learned from Field Day Throwdown 2012:

  • It's helpful to remember cheers from softball in 5th grade.
  • I am too old &/or out of shape to ever play tug-of-war again.

So...what's your favorite field day event?

Awesome cheer! I always loved the egg-in-a-spoon races, even if I wasn't very good at them. :) {I'm with Brooke; I was never good a field day!}
