Egg Toss

My favorite school event to photograph is the egg toss we have at achievement day! This morning I snapped away while each grade lined up and tossed eggs to a partner. The thing that makes it so much fun is the expressions on the student's faces. I like to try to capture the action and most every year I get some classic shots. There are way too many to post them all, but hope you enjoy these!
