Day 17 / 104 - Field Day
Last Friday, our county-wide homeschool support group hosted their annual Field Day. We had heard fantastic reviews of their Field Day since moving to Beckley, however our schedule had yet to permit us to attend. Fortunately this year, we experienced it in all it's greatness.
The day's theme was the Civil War, which is perfect for our US History study this year. 80+ students were divided into the Union and the Confederacy, and all events had a Civil War twist to their competition.
I do think I have to go on record stating my favorite part about the entire day was the sportsmanship shown by the students regardless of their ages. There was quality teamwork and competition. Everyone seemed to have a blast.
