Let’s take a break from flood coverage. It’s a tad overwhelming, and there will be so much to talk about in the months to come.
Let’s talk about field day.
This morning, Katy said, “Do you hear music?” and in fact, she was right. Coming through our windows was the joyous sound of music: it is field day down the street.
I’ll be the first to admit that I’d forgotten about field day after all these years, but as we chatted about it, my memories all came flooding back to me. I don’t even remember the exact games we played, but the feelings I had remain strong. Never did I feel such care-free freedom and bliss as I did in my days galavanting about Parkview Elementary.
I vaguely remember tug of war, three-legged races, sack races, hoola hooping, and water baloons…I think…and definitely endless amounts of four-square, which we were completely addicted to.
Do you remember games you played? What were they and what were your favorites?
