I had one jumper and one sad little girl


The kids have been doing this jump rope team thing for a couple months now. They are loving it, and keep telling me they are learning a lot. 

But I already knew that since they jump rope all.the.time, and I've noticed the improvements. 

But on Monday there was an official mini-performance so we could all get a look. 


Pierce was all business about it, and pretty darn good! 




BUT....

I had to keep Hope home from school on Monday because of a nasty cough.

One doctor visit and a diagnosis of walking pneumonia later, and I was faced with breaking the bad news: NO JUMP ROPE PERFORMANCE FOR HOPE.

CUE THE TEARS.

And general devastation.


I really felt sad for her, but what you gonna do? ( I comforted her with a milkshake, and in return taught her  to eat her feelings. WAY TO GO, MOM)

But I had to pay attention to the little guy. (Excuse the creepy smile face, not sure how else to protect the innocent from my tens of readers)


I had never heard of a school having such a thing as a jump rope team until we moved here, and I'm glad my kids are a part of it now.



And I will also be glad when there is another performance so I can watch BOTH my kids do their thing.



Love my jumpers!
