shoes and tea

Catching up with some already posted pics - these two were taken in July during the Ichi Nen Sei (7th grade) only Sports Day.
The 1nen sei girls played dodgeball and the boys played basketball in the gym.
The pic above is the entrance way to the gym - the kids have to remove their "indoor" slippers before going into the gym, where they can then put on special-soled gym-only sneakers. The girls, well-prepared as always, have flasks of cold tea and sweat towels - the boys just sweat into their shirts and go thirsty.
The pic below is of three of my most genki 7th grade girls who I think will provide me with plenty of good poses over the next few years.
Enjoy the pics and I'll try to post more soon.
