Land Run!

 Tuesday was the 125th anniversary of the first land run in Oklahoma so yesterday we had a land run day at our house to celebrate.  (The awesome picture above was taken by Danielle, who has many more great pictures on her blog!)

 The kids made their own flags to mark their claims.

 We had a lesson on the land run.  (Thanks to Rachel for this picture!)

 We lined up...

 ...and they were off!
(I hope this video will work for you...I am still figuring this kind of thing out!)

 And they kept on going and going and going!

 Alice on her claim!

 Jack with his land!

 Then we had lunch and cookies.

 And the kids played games like egg relays and Red Lion.

We had 13 kids and 5 moms and I think we all had a good time--even if we did get a little sunburned!

Thank you so much for inviting us! We had so much fun! I am pretty sure we are going to have to get an Oklahoma cookie cutter now :)
