The soccer field at the local international school
was teeming with people early Friday morning for Field Day,
the annual pre-Spring Break event for elementary and middle school students.
Michael's favorite event is always the 1k.
He had some tough competition from the other 7th & 8th grade boys
(you can see that Michael on the right in his red t-shirt
wasn't exactly the longest-legged man on the track)
But he still managed to come in first. (Way to go, Michael!!)
(He wishes they'd figure out a way to do a 5k,
but a student got lost out in the neighborhood a few years ago(!),
and the on-campus options are pretty limited.)
The three-legged race was more of a challenge,
being paired with a friend who is a little bit taller...

The morning ended in an all-school relay
and Michael carried the baton over the finish line first for his team,
with his good friend J right behind him...
Way to go, guys!!

The morning was a gift from God,
with bright sunshine,
and strong, healthy bodies in competition
to the glory of God!
Every time I step on the field
I will give everything I have...
