Neighborhood Olympics

Right now there are several children in my backyard conducting what appear to be the Olympic Games.

Rumor has it that there’s a triathlon in progress.

First they had the hurdles. One by one, the 6-and-unders jumped over little lacrosse sticks, soccer balls, light sabres, and for the grand finale, a small wagon. Adventure Boy scored a 7. Little Brother scored a 6. Adventure Boy cheered: “You did it! You got it in 6 weapons!”

Then they moved on to the front sidewalk for the bicycle portion of the race.

As to the swimming, maybe they plan to wait until after the rain comes and hold that one tomorrow.
