Jenna. May 7. Fitness Day.

Colby's school had Family Fitness Day today. The event began with a "1K" walk in the front of the school, complete with tape at the finish line for the runners to break through. Then there was a triathalon (a little run, a little tricycle race, and a jog through the sprinklers). The kids enjoyed the weights station - gallon milk jugs filled with beans that they could lift over their heads.

Kennedy enjoyed the aerobics time - there was a cute kids' aerobics DVD playing and all the kids and parents got to bust a move to some silly music. Carlee had fun running all over the church; she got her exercise and then took almost a 4 hour nap. Maybe we should have fitness day Every day.

I liked the obstacle course on the playground - hula hoops, ring hops, wheelbarrow, running around the trees, in and out of the bridge and down the slide to finish. The teachers were very creative and it was fun for all (even though it was 94 degrees outside!).

When all was finished, we had a picnic lunch in the front of the church. Colby received a medal with Hebrews 12:1 written on it: "let us run with perseverance the race that is set before us..."

Since there was so much movement, I took a lot of blurry pictures. But I liked this one because it summed up how we spent our hot day - getting re-hydrated. (Note the cute runner's number on the front of Colby's shirt.)
