Sports Carnival

The kids had their sports carnival Friday.  Each school kid is assigned a 'faction' - Sterling (red), Forrest (green), or O'Connell (gold).  Siblings are put in the same factions.  You remain in your same faction for your entire school career where your faction accrues points for different events.  The sports carnival is a full day of competition, fully supported by the parents - complete with a latte truck in the school courtyard :)

We brought along our very best cheerleader - with her fingernails painted sterling red :)  Lily and Caden also sprayed red in their hair.  Gooooo Stirling!

The ball toss and race
O'Connell won.  Lily came home with a third place ribbon for her 100m dash.  Maybe she will take after her cousins.  Caden received a few stickers too for his great showing.  A fun day had by all.  And too bad we won't be here next year to crush O'Connell!!!
