Jump

At the beginning of the school year, Nadia's school started offering different "clubs." Cheerleading, arts and crafts, science and jump rope. Nadia was totally excited about the jump rope club and wanted to join right away. They met twice a month after school and yesterday was their last meeting. All the parents were invited to see what they had learned and all the kids seemed to have really enjoyed it. I know Nadia did, she said she wants to join again next year if they offer it again. I took about one million pictures, but most of them were blurry and didn't turn out at all.
Getting started...
Am Anfang des Schuljahres hat Nadia's Schule verschiedene "Clubs" angeboten. Cheerleading, basteln, Naturwissenschaft, Huepfseilspringen... Nadia wollte sofort in den Huepfseilclub and wir haben sie auch gleich angemeldet. Die Gruppe traf sich zwei mal im Monat nach der Schule und gestern war das letzte Treffen. Wir Eltern waren eingeladen um zu sehen was die Kinder in diesem Jahr gelernt hatten. Alle haben es wirklich gut gemacht und es hat ihnen scheinbar auch viel Spass gemacht. Nadia war auf jeden Fall begeistert und will es naechstes Jahr wieder machen, wenn es angeboten wird...
Ich habe ca. 'ne Million Bilder gemacht, aber leider waren fast alle verschwommen und wackelig.
Hier fing die Gruppe an,having fun,
hatten viel Spass,
doing the double dutch.
und haben "double dutch" (mit zwei langen Huepfseilen) gemacht.

  2. I remember doing that during recess - all the girls got into it. It was great fun. I couldn't do that again with my bad hips.

    Glad you all had a good time. It's great exercise too.
