Day 62 -Challenge Day

It was a VERY busy week for Peg. When she wasn't cooking up a storm, she was planning our annual winter challenge. Due to unpredictable weather we've decided to have it indoors the last couple of years. Maybe we'll move back outside next year.
The kids spend two hours rotating through twelve stations. Depending on the theme of the year, the kids work on their cardiovascular endurance, strength and flexibility in theme activities. Last year we did variations on winter Olympic sports. We usually collect donations for the Canadian Heart and Stroke Foundation. Each cycle is divided into 12 colour teams. The stations are run by student leaders from each cycle. The leaders spend a day with Peg prepping all the stations, equipment and learning how to lead the fun. The collage I put together from this year's event includes pictures that my photo assistant Em and I took. We couldn't get all the events but included aerial jumping, snowman circle tug-of-war, snowman tag, a suspicious picture of sock tag (which looks a lot like wrestling. Hmmmmm), summit race and curling. A great time was had by all.

Where do you find the hours in a day to do all of these projects! Judging from the pics, the kids had a blast!

That looks like a really fun day. I think your collage does a fine job of showing what it was all about....
