track and field

Every Monday night Bellingham Parks and Rec puts on a track and field event at Civic Field. It's done on a drop-in basis and costs just $4 per child. We've been able to attend three so far this summer. The kids LOVE it. Tons of events. Tons of ribbons. Lots of friends there. Very fun!

Group huddle before races begin.
Dad got off work in time to come and cheer!

Audrey ran the 50M, 100M, and 200M races.

Liam ran the 50M, 100M, 200M and 400M races. He got first-place for the 400!

Liam throwing the mini-javelin.

Ethan running the 50M hurdles.

Audrey throwing the discus. She got second-place in this event last week!

Liam jumping the long jump.

Audrey throwing the shot put. Nice form, don't you think?

What a great program this is! The list of reasons why we love this community just keeps growing!
