Joel had his Sports Day at school today and it looks like the kids had a lot of fun. The idea came about because SA only came home with 1 medal from the Olympics and the school thought it had better do its bit to train the future 2016 athletes!! Somehow, we don't think Joel will be in the squad, but he certainly had a lot of fun trying.
The little ones had their own half hour of fun and it was amazing to see how competitive the 5 and 6 year olds could become!
As the afternoon wore on, the middle and senior school joined in and it became a really good family time with braai's and selling of cool drinks etc. Thankfully, as you can see, the weather also decided to play ball and we all enjoyed a bask in the early summer sunshine (rain due back on Monday).
Dean spent a bit of this afternoon helping with the braai and has come home excited as he met a fellow MTB'er and together they made a plan to go through to Uniondale for the Karoo To Coast.
