Last week the school had Dan The Skipping Man come in to demonstrate skipping skills and promote skipping for fun. Skipping ropes were available to buy and initially I wasn't going to buy any for the kids. The ropes were not really that cheap, but many friends were buying them that it was hard for me to say "no".
The girls loved using their skipping ropes back home (in Canada) and I'm surprised that we didn't think to bring them with us. Since getting the ropes the kids have been doing nothing but skipping. They were outside by 7:30 a.m. today and skipped until it was time to leave for school.
I think it is the best money that I've spent since being here!
