(Below-Right) Determined to traverse the monkey bars, this little Marshalltownian showed no fear of height on the Mega-10 playground Thursday afternoon. (Above) Many adults can remember the first moment of a game of tag, when the person who is “it” has to sprint off to avoid being caught right from the start of the game. The girl in red certainly knew that feeling as she bolted away as tag began.
