|Megan trying out archery|
Last week somehow in our visiting we came up with the idea of having some competitions on Family night. So the plan was that everybody could choose 3 events and then we would all compete in them. In the end we didn't have 3 events chosen by each person as we didn't have time and a thunderstorm came up before we managed to do our water sports. We did however have a fun time.
The competitions that were held were:
- Chase Kitchi (our dog) and get item away from him. This is a challenging game that he loves to play. Megan and Jonathan had to split this point as Megan was the one who tackled him and then Jonathan grabbed the item out of his mouth.
-The game of lightening (shooting baskets)
-Racing while balancing a book on our head.
- Doing a gymnastic bridge (I can't - I tried) and holding it the longest and the highest.
-State Capital bee
It was the night for 13 year olds as Aaron won with 4.5 points and Beatrice came in second with 3 points.
|Gregory throwing the tomahawk.|
- Kayak race (timed)
-Holding your breath under water the longest.
-Drawing a house while holding the paper on a book on top of your head.
-Racing while carrying heavy weights.
-A don't get wet challenge that requires the contestant to stay in a certain area while all the others have one bucket of water each to throw at him/her.
We had a lot of fun. This might need to be repeated some other time.
