Jump the Crick (n.) An outdoor game generally played by rambunctious, energetic, well-calloused children between the ages of six and twelve, the game object being which child can jump the farthest distance between two parallel ropes. Related: Hilarious(adj.) Athletisism(n.) Craziness (n.)By the way, if "crick" is an unfamiliar term to you, relocate to East Texas or some other hillbilly-saturated community. I promise that you shall be educated upon its meaning, and fairly swiftly.

A brief peek into our world tucked on a farm road somewhere deep the heart of Texas. This past Wednesday was the much-anticipated school "fun day." The morning classes were... distracted. To say the least. Fortunately for both students and teachers, they came to a close at noon... and the "fun day" officially commenced.
I'll let the photos do the storytelling for me.
My second and third graders waiting in the lunch line.
Root beer floats!Oh! Yeah!
Preparing for sack races, which could also be defined as clumsiness / general hilarity in action.
I think the general concession was that everyone present, kids, teachers, and parents included, had a blast.
Smile today, you guys. Someone will be blessed.
