Taylor Anne doing part of an obstacle course 'whirl around the baseball bat'?
The Children's house kids listening to relay instructions.
Taylor Anne and a 6th grader squeezing out the watery sponge into the bucket. At certain stations they had 'older' kids helping and encouraging the younger ones.
Running back to pass the sponge to the next person.

It was wonderful. They were broken up into 4-5 groups of maybe 12 kids, and each group would complete a 'station' together. At the relay stations they would be split further into two teams of 6 or so, and the 6 were randomly divided out at each station so they were cheering each other on, because they were all one big team together. There was a water bucket and sponge relay, two separate obstacle courses complete with tires, spin on the bat, jump through the hula hoop, and a balance beam; a basketball shooting station, a double tricycle relay race, and even a 'Tug of war'. All of the kids seemed to be having a wonderful time, and none of them felt like they were winning or losing anything. It was really neat.
I think I have ESP...
