The Water Balloons at Field Day
Red teams, blue teams. Hot, muggy weather. Friday at school was Field Day. Tricycle races, tug-of-war, scratchy burlap potato sacks. My station was Golf Ball Relay- balance a golf ball in the bowl of a spoon,walk the course without dropping it. Such concentration! The station after mine, run by my colleague Erin, was the water balloon toss. Take a step back and lob it across to a partner. The filled balloons like swollen jelly beans, waiting in the giant garbage can, told me to run upstairs to my locker, get the camera out and photograph them between morning and afternoon sessions. The students were so excited to go to the water balloons when Mr. Miller blew the whistle three times.
