Week 10 is finished...the dash to the finish line begins!

Last weekend was our annual sports day, so the whole school was on the sports field for most of the day. I was the official scorer again, so I had my laptop, some bags of ribbons, and my knitting. This was my view from my little tent for most of the day; I'm right next to the Fisher (my house team) area.

I didn't get many pictures of the actual action as I was too far away for most of it, but here is a picture of one of the last races, the wheelbarrow race.

At the end of the day we were thrilled to find out that Fisher, Beth and I's house team, had won for the first time in years! Go Flames!

Monday and Tuesday were our second half-term, and we had a group of kids from Amano visiting us. They joined us for our early morning swim; I have to say that they all got in, but I think the promise of hot chocolate had a lot to do with that!

In more personal news, my knee is healing nicely; I'm now only wearing the brace for part of the day and while walking, and I took my first very careful jog on Thursday. I'm so thankful that it wasn't serious, and while it has taken longer than I would have liked to heal, I'm so thankful that it has! Now I'm trying to keep the nasty cold the kids are passing around at bay; the last thing I need is to be incapacitated with a cold during exam week!

Parting shot: I love the view across the valley!
