Field Day 2012

We had the pleasure of hosting the Ponoka Homeschooler's 4th Annual Field Day for the 4th time today.  It is a day when local homeschoolers get together and play fun games, like; the egg and spoon race, water balloon toss, scavenger hunt and tons of wacky games. The kids look forward to it all year and have a blast. After the games we have pot luck lunch. 

Here in the picture below, Nola is explaining a game to the children.

This game was fun. The teams formed a circle, holding hands, and they had to get the hula hoop all the way around the circle twice without touching it.

Today started out really nice and sunny, but so quickly the clouds came in and then, almost without warning, it started to pour. This has never happened before. We had to stop the games - I think we still had 4 or 5 more to go and I told everyone to get in the house. This year 28 kids were able to participate in field day and 3 left with their families once the rain came . So we had 25 children plus toddlers and parents squished in our small farm house, eating a meal.

Here are some of the kids in the living room

This will definitely be a memorable field day.  We all had such a great time, even with the adverse weather conditions. It was just a great time of fellowship and fun.


  1. Looks like so much fun! We miss not being a part of a homeschool group, for reasons just like this. :-)
