The middle school band from our school is in Oahu this weekend for a band festival. They left yesterday morning before school. Since over half of the middle schoolers were gone, we took the remaining students to a local park for a day of physical activities and fun.
We walked to the park. It was about a 20 minute walk. There were a ton of things to do there. I enjoyed watching some of the kids slide down a big hill on a boogie board that a student had brought.
There were lots of different games happening… some soccer, some catch. There was even a demonstration of the crane technique from “Karate Kid”.
After a little while, we moved to the tennis courts, where Paul taught the kids a game that was a cross between tennis and volleyball. It was really fun.
We had lunch at the tennis courts, then headed for the pool. It’s a community pool that is free. Isn’t that weird? I kept saying how weird it was, but nobody else thought so. Don’t pools usually charge or require membership or something? This is paid for by the county.
Anyway, it was fun to swim after all that activity. The water was a little cold, but if you kept moving, it wasn’t that bad.
What a fun day! I was very tired afterward. Whew! I slept like a log last night.
