During the Talent Show and Band Concert yesterday, we were treated to an amazing display of talent from quite a few students. And the weather was typical Field Day weather : hot and sunny. No matter how rainy and cold the forecast was, is, or will be, it is always blazing sunlight on Field Day. It works out fine though, the kids play on the swing set, have a picnic lunch, do fun activities, eat ice cream, and then get hosed down by a fire truck. What kid wouldn't love that? The only thing that saved me from being soaked by students was the fact that I was carrying a camera all afternoon.
I took over 900 pictures yesterday, and would love to share so many of them, but here are some of my favorites.

So many things going on in this photo, I love it!
They were supposed to be transferring water cup by cup from one bucket to another.
What a gorgeous day!
Speaking of photography, I just got my yearbook, and it is full of wonderful moments that I captured this year. I am so grateful to have this camera and to be able to capture so many precious moments. Not to mention how awesome it is to experience all those moments at this school. Hard to believe I am finishing up my 5th year here! There have been so many ups and downs, but these kids are amazing and I love them all!
