Now that Maxine can ride her bike, Homeschool Phys Ed class is officially in session.
Is this really Phys Ed? Or is this just a morning run in disguise?
Whatever you want to call it, a bunch of lessons were learned on our group outing this morning – lessons for both young and old.
A Lesson for Mom
When Maxine says “Whoa, whoa, whoa!!”, that means she’s about to come to a sudden and complete stop in the middle of the sidewalk.
This lead to the discovery that I run too closely behind Maxine.
I learned this lesson approximately 22 times.
A Lesson for Kids
No, hub caps do not grow on trees.
Yes, I will explain why this wheel cover is hanging from a branch as many times as you need me to.
A Lesson in Time
What can three girls accomplish in 32 minutes?
Well, we can cover 2 miles.
We can listen to Maxine exclaim “I’m so sweaty hot!” 1,321 times.
We can have lots of discussion about why people hang wheel covers in trees.
We can consider making a sign to hang on a small bicycle that says This Vehicle Makes Frequent Stops.
A Lesson for Breakfast
Overnight oats make the perfect post-run/ride/stop/go/stop/go/whoa/whoa/whoa meal.
1/2 c rolled oats, a small scoop of shredded coconut, a sprinkle of chia seeds and a dash of cinnamon with a 1/2 c (or so) of 2% Fage and a splash of almond milk. Popped in the fridge to soak for an hour or so, topped with a small banana and a scoop of almond butter upon returning from our sweaty hot excursion this morning.
Is that the bell? I think Homeschool Phys Ed is officially over. Class dismissed!
