Weekly Photo Challenge: Twist

Oh, the joys and excitement of field day at school. It marks a day of celebration.

No schoolwork! No books!

A day that sings of Summer and the freedom of summer. In fact, on a bright sunny field day, with a sky super blue, and the clouds just this side of light and fluffy…I am told you can even SMELL Summer.

Yeah.

There are games, competitions, concession stands, and WATER play. Teachers have fun. Parents have fun. And did I mention no homework?

This is one of the greatest days of the year (to an elementary child). And guess what? I get to be there.

For the first time in forever, I make it to field day. How thrilling! I thought my elementary school days ended for good (since I have a twenty-year-old daughter). Ahhhh, but that is the reason step kids are called BONUS kids.

See….???? Bonus! How can you not smile about that? I sure am.

The challenge this week is to “twist”.

I can’t think of anything more twisted than a rope.

And what goes with rope?

TUG OF WAR!

This is my youngest tugging her ever-loving heart out. Oh, she tugged. She sweat. She even stuck her tongue out (so cute!).

In the end…

They still lost the war.

::sad face::

But you know what? Doesn’t matter. It might be the end of field day, but summer is thisssssss close.

Just stop and smell the breeze…you’ll catch a whiff and I bet it takes you back to your sweetest days of summer.

Have a happy weekend! And a most blessed Memorial Day!

  1. Angelia, your selection of photographs are PER-FECT for this challenge!

    I love people and action shots because even thought it’s a single captured moment, you can see the ‘movement’ in them!

    AWESOME shots! I especially love the first one and the beautiful expression on the face of your youngest. She is so intently listening.

    Have a super holiday weekend, my friend!

    1. Brawn is not my strong suit! I played when they called for an adults only tug. The girls were so proud “my side” won. I yanked the crap out of that rope. Hahaha! It about did me in. I am a grandma, ya know?!?! 😀
