I came home from South Carolina today, and it's great to be back with my family. The kids wanted to ride their bikes to the grade school, so off we went. Z started talking about how much she loves P.E. at school, so Krista started telling A all about kickball. So we decided to give it a try.
Although I gave a valiant effort at teaching the children kickball, all I really taught them was a mild version of Calvinball.
Some of today's rules included: Daddy has to walk when he kicks the ball. If one of the kids can't find the base (we were using bits of trash we found in the field), then I couldn't tag them until they found it, it took one "out" for me to stop kicking, but they got four outs.
P.S. Krista was worried when I saw this post that I was going to be talking about Calvinism. Calvinism Ball, in my opinion, is much less fun. It has many of the same rules as kickball, but everyone gets together and decides the outcome before they play.
Calvinism Ball (not your version of Calvinball) sounds even worse than than my middle school dodgeball experience sitting on the bleachers waiting to be chosen. Seems I was always picked last or right before blind girl and awkward boy.ReplyDelete

That just made my last hour. Sorry that it didn't make more, but it was a big day. Anyway, that was pretty hilarious - I marvel that no one has made the connection before. Truly it must take a dizzying intellect to draw that out.
hahaha! awesome. Sorry I missed it.ReplyDelete
I teach 2 and 3 year olds. This post reminded me of how we play musical chairs. I don't eliminate any children so it ends up being a bunch of kids walking around a cirlce of chairs then sitting down when the music stops. No competition, no winners or losers. Seems kinda silly but the kids love it.ReplyDelete
