About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

P.E. Home School Style


Crew Blog Hop

P.E.

                                           
                                                           Gym shorts.
                                    Smelly locker rooms.
                                             Showers...


                                              You HAD to take them.  
                              "Community style".
                               So the story went.
                               Somehow I escaped them.
                               I'm a "delicate" sweater.:)
              (Either that or I worked hard to not work too hard.)


                                                   I loved playing field hockey.
                                   And soccer.
                                                 

                       Big, blue mats with uneven/parallel bars gave me
               nightmares.
               A gymnastic routine?  For a GRADE?
               How about square dancing.
               Sweaty palms.
               (It was one way to hold hands with the cute boys!)
                               

            Thank goodness my girls love our home school P.E. class.
         They are taught by an incredible group of Christians who 
        strive to make every child feel accomplished.


                                I find myself wanting to get up and play!
                     Capture the Flag, Sharks and Minnows,
                     basketball, tennis, and more.
                                    

                        For an hour I can read, clip coupons, take pictures 
                or just watch.
                 It's almost as good as a massage.


                                 No gymnastics.
                       No smelly gym clothes.


                                   No grades.


                                    There are lots of smiles.


                               And, oh yeah, no showers.
            Until we get home and the girls can take them alone.:)

Hi Lori
The PE lessons look great fun and the best part is 'no communal showers'love it! I hated that at school too but most of us wrapped ourselves in a large towel, went into the showers, kept the towel on and just splashed some water on our faces and came out again! Those parachute games are great. Loved seeing the pictures but would prefer to be clipping coupons with you :)

I agree with Amy...this type of PE has me written all over t!

The worst part of PE (after not being picked) was having to shower and/or change in front of others. I used to try to cram myself in my locker!

This made me giggle and cringe! I have the same memories of gym class ;)

That looks like something fun from church camp. PE home school style is so much better than my PE memories, too.
