Preparing my son for a career in the food service industry ... a race carrying a tray of plastic food.

The field day events were different when I was a kid. More sporty.
Of course, with only one first grade class in the school, competition was against fellow classmates, sometimes even boys against girls. Tim's grade has two homerooms, so his class went head-to-head against the other class.
Plenty of things were missing, like the BBQ lunch and the inflatable water slides.
They tried to keep the kids cool in the 90 degree weather by spritzing them with a water hose from time to time, but the best way is to drink cold water. So, I was giving my boys cold water every so often.
