We set record temperatures today in Toronto. It went up to 30 degrees celcius. It was also our Jump Rope for Heart day. The entire school went outside and skipped for an hour to music. As you can see from the picture I attempted to relive my youth and tried to skip some double Dutch.
For the last few years I haven’t even attempted skipping. At one of these events about 5 or 6 years ago I ran and skipped with the kids but I wasn’t wearing proper shoes and I paid for it all summer with an injured foot. Even though my participation was short lived I think I’ll try it again sometime. The feet and the knees don’t seem to be bothered.
Despite the hot weather the kids enjoyed themselves and we’ve raised awareness and money for the Heart and Stroke Association in the process. Hopefully next week the rest of the pledges will come in and I can check off one more thing that needs to be done before the end of the year.
Tomorrow is the Fun Fair at school. I usually go but this year I was going to give it a pass but a certain somebody is trying to make me feel guilty. If I go she’s going to have to let me post pictures of her going into the Dunk Tank.
Stay tuned…… do I go or not!
