Last week - which seems just like yesterday, this week being so hectic, we went to another small local school to have a little jump off.
Skipping jump off.
The kids have been practising for ages and were happy to show off their skills.
This one is starting to get more co-ordinated and goes a bit steadier, and there fore has more stamina. She ended up being the girl that skipped the longest. And won a rather cool prize. But more on that later...
And remember that cool prize?
An MP3 player. One eight year old girl is now too cool for school, and of course we must cart the bloody thing everywhere and have it stuck in one's ears when mum is issuing orders. She had to be restrained from taking it to the cattle yards - not an ideal place to a lack of ability to hear yells of "watch out" coming your way! ;-)
And apparently we need better music. She has plans of taking her new toy to our very cool and hip neighbour across the road (also our teacher aide) to get more hip and happenin' music.
Feeling old and ungroovy once again.....
