Ferris Wheel - Sky Watch

Isn't the sky beautiful? This mom and her two kids think so. Thy're trying to get closer to it by taking a ride on the Ferris wheel. ;-)

Yep, more from the Mount Albert Sports Day and Spring Fair held last weekend at the grounds of the Mt A Community Centre in Mt A, the easternmost community in EG. (See last weekend's posts if you want to see more.)

And as you can see I have saved the best for last. Well, it appears to be the best if you scroll down and look at some of the winning posters created by kids at the Mount Albert Public School. The pictures were drawn BEFORE last weekend -- the theme: the kids' favourite memories of Sports Day 2007.
True, not all the posters had a Ferris wheel, but many did.

This is just a sampling done by kids in various grades. They were taped to the wall inside the Mt A Community Centre for all to enjoy. And as you can see I couldn't resist taking a few photos.
This year the entire weekend was beautiful. It usually rains, but notice their are pink skies and fluffy clouds in this artist's memories. Goes to prove the weather doesn't always spoil a good time. ;-)
And the last drawing doesn't seem to have a sky at all. But who really cares because the kid in the picture has such a BIG smile?
