of the week and spent it at the neighboring compound enjoying the “1st Annual Sports Day”. (Internet has been extremely finicky, so read this as if it was last Friday) Although an extremely long day, all the students and other participants had an athletic fun-filled day with the opportunity to participate in soccer (football if you will), volleyball, basketball, ultimate frisbee, horseshoes, and corn hole! Added bonus, mid-day, hamburgers and hot dogs were on the grill although it took a bit of convincing the students that hamburger was not made from pork — but stay away from the hot dogs, not so sure what’s inside those dogs! 🙂
Our students signed up for soccer (in the yellow jerseys), we had a volleyball team, a few playing corn hole even though that was new to them, and a few for horseshoes. Yes, both teams for soccer and volleyball kicked ass and came in 1st place for each event. One photo below shows their excitement on the soccer field and the group shot was taken at the end of a very long day! (Have been trying for an hour to download a volleyball pic, no such luck). Although our compound took first place in two events, it wasn’t enough to secure the first ever Commander’s Cup of Sport’s Day! Maybe next time………..
