| that time we had a school fun day. |

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.


  1. How sweet, Hannah! I am trying not to envy your weather ;) Lol! Looks like a lot of fun :) ...but it probably would have ended in up in the breaking of my other wrist this week :/ That's how our church's homeschool activity ended for me last Friday. Never a dull moment :)

  2. Hannah, It is so good to see a picture of you and your students! It looks so nice a warm:) Right now it is -7 with a lower wind chill...which was -36 this morning:)
    Anyway, I'm so glad to see a post about what you are doing!

    I'm praying for you.


    1. Brrr! I think on the "fun day" we were sweating in seventy-six degree sunshine! Although, the day before, the high was in the eighties.:)
      I miss you! Looking forward to seeing you this summer, Lord willing!

  3. Thanks for sharing a peek into your "fun" day! It looks like a lot of fun was had by all.:)
    I miss you dear friend!

    1. Sadly, the sunshine has departed... but at least the high still sticks in the fifties! And yes, it was definitely a great time!

  5. Oh Hannah! What a delightful day for the children (and you)! Looks you all had wonderful fun - thank you for sharing the lovely photos, I just had to smile!! Higs to you my dear! Kelly xx
