We had our school picnic at a park in Montrose. We had some races and a jumping contest. I ran the first race and the last race. The last one was a quarter mile and till I reached the end I couldn’t even feel my legs. For the jumping contest, they started each grade where the last had left off. I didn’t even make it over the first time. Backing up, before the races started, the children had great fun in the skate park, sliding down the sides and riding rip-stick. After the races, we had lunch together. A bit later in the afternoon, a few of us played softball. Only two girls brave enough to play. I enjoyed myself thoroughly.
