J is for Jumping Rope ABC Wednesday


I happened to see these Catholic school kids at recess playing jump rope....I was amazed that the older kids were jumping rope as well!

  10. This was mostly done by the girls at our infant school, I rember the girls would sing songs and ryhmes whist skipping, maybe there's some here you might recall.

  11. What an inspirational 'J'!
    I loved skipping, I tried to take it up again recently as exercise but will leave it to the kids - gravity takes all the fun out of it! :)

  15. I'm surprised that there are some boys jumping rope too! When I was in school the boys would never, never jump rope at school! Maybe at home with their sisters, but never at school. I guess some things have changed for the better.

    If I was walking by and saw that scene I don't think I would have taken a picture, because it is of young kids. It's easier for women to take some pictures.

  16. I really have a difficult time with J post and hence the late visit to everyone. What a clever theme you have with Jumping. Congratulation and the picture is lovely with kids with tons of energy. I feel energetic in visiting your J post. Thank you.

  18. Never too old to jump! I'd be doing it now if I could but no one to hold the rope! I didn't realise children wore school uniforms such as these anymore.

  19. clueless--I did worry a little bit about taking this....I even considered blurring it so you couldn't see the children's faces...it is a sad statement to our society that I even had to consider it.
