The annual school “track” meet

Today was the track meet for Zane’s school, grades K-2.  It is always so much fun to watch the kids compete with so much fervor.  Zane is very competitive anyway and he really does put his all into it, regardless of the outcome. 

There are several events and the kids each compete in four of them.  Zane competed in the balloon pop race, the fifty yard dash, the three legged race, and the bean bag on the head race.
