Neighborhood Olympics
By Mary Lynn Bushong
  

1     The wheelbarrow race was on. Pairs of children began hurrying toward the finish line, with one child being the wheelbarrow and the other being the person "pushing" it.
 
2     Several parents stood by cheering them on. One or two of the "wheelbarrows" collapsed for a moment before getting up and pushing on.
 
3     At the end of the race many flopped on the ground to catch their breath. The race looked easy, but it wasn't.
 
4     "The winners of the wheelbarrow race are Jess and Dan Turner; second were Abby Gresham and Livie Barton, and third were James and Zach Barton," said Mr. Porter.
 
5     The children stood in a row while ribbons with small medallions were put around their necks. Mr. Brazeal snapped digital pictures of them.
 
6     As soon as they could, the three young Bartons ran to their parents to show off their prizes.
 
7     "Well done, kids," said Dad. "Do you want us to hold those for you? Your next race is coming up. What is it again?"
 
8     "It's the egg and spoon race," said Mom. "We'd better get over to the starting line."
 
9     None of the Bartons won the egg and spoon race, but that did not discourage them. Everyone who tried was given a ticket. The tickets could be used to win prizes like hats or small toys.
