In the field events he chose the Hoppity Hop. You may be wondering what exactly is that, as was I. You know those big giant bouncy balls with the handle? I remember loving to bounce on them as a kid. Well, that's pretty much it. He had to bounce 50 yards in his lane. He was smiles ALL 50 YARDS of it!
The last of the categories were the individual events. He chose the shoe kick.
Do you blame him?
Common, what 7 year old boy would not only love to kick his shoe off as hard as he could, but in a competition as well?!
There was also the much anticipated tug-of-war. Each of the 5 classrooms battled it out against each other. It was double elimination, Owen's class was not the winner, I think they placed 3rd.
It was a perfectly beautiful morning with big smiles and hearts all around.
Owen did awesome in his events and cheering and congratulating his peers!
