WW: Skipping - How do you spend time in your community?

That's what we call it in my country. You can use one rope or two. I love doing the two rope like this. It's so exciting. I miss it and I can't wait to teach my children!

If only we had communities that come together and do things like this. I do miss my country with how neighbors really get to know each other and live in community etc. 

We found the very same fun sharing on our mission trip to Nicaragua.

  3. I wish our neighbors interacted like that...so sad that we don't!

    I was never able to do 2! I always wanted to. I guess it is never too late to learn.

  4. Double jump roping came along well after my jump roping days. Though if I could remember where I probably have a single hand held rope that I used to jump up and down my lane.

  9. When we were younger, we double dutched all the time. I probably still could do it today.

    Sadly we don't get out into the community anymore. We do fellowship at church though. We feed the homeless, we go to retreats, we do bible studies and we do community out reach. If we are not at home, we are at church or with our church doing something. We live in a very small town, so life here is very laid back.

  17. Unfortunately I wasn't able to see your video. It kept saying error. I think you're talking about jumping rope/double dutch they call it with two ropes. I use play that in school & where I was growing up. Tons of fun.. Happy WW

  18. I remember the first time I learned. I was so afraid I'd fall and then I got it and couldn't stop!

    I totally have to teach my kids and in my time, we used rope not the fancy skip ropes they have these days that are lighter than a feather!

  21. It is kind of sad how we live in a country where we don't do a lot of this and we shy away from knowing our neighbors. Looks like a wonderful time for all and such great spirit.
