Photo Friday: Sports Day 2015

Yesterday was the annual Sports Day at the primary campus. It’s a big community event, and school is canceled at the high school to allow teens and teachers to come and cheer or help.

Once you have a child at the primary campus, your family is assigned to Team Yellow or Team Red, and all your children will always be that color. We are Team Yellow!

DSC_9013Nehemiah had fun watching, but this year he refused to wear his yellow shirt. The yellow truck counts I guess?

DSC_9009Proof that we were winning at one point.

DSC_8931This picture is a little dark, but it was one of my favorite moments of Sports Day, and shows one of the things I love about Ukarumpa. Sports Day has some challenging moments for kids who aren’t athletic, and there is one event that is really hard for Makaylah. Several friends finished the event with her, and then everyone in her age group, even girls that aren’t close friends, surrounded Makaylah to encourage her.

At the end of the day, whether we are red or yellow, “winners” or “losers” we are Community!
