Good Sports

Monday, August 11, 2008

If you have boys in the house, you know how important sports are to them. My 6 year old son has shown a propensity for athleticism practically since birth. He seems to be adept at whatever sport he chooses to pick up. I, on the other hand, have never been particularly gifted in this arena. (That's not to say girls can't be sporty, my 3 year old sweetie seems to hold her own pretty well against her big brother). It is a good thing that Aiden has a real love of sports, because I have no idea how we would channel all of that energy otherwise!

With the Olympics getting in full swing, it is a great time to incorporate some history, geography, physics and sociology into a lesson on the Olympic Games. There are lots of resources available online and at the library so have some fun with it.

We spent last weekend at the Virginia Sports Hall of Fame as an extension of our lessons. The kids (and grown ups too) had a great time with all the interactive, football, soccer, baseball, Nascar racing, horse racing, and more. It was very entertaining. My favorite part was watching my two oldest galloping around in their horse costumes, yeeeeee haw!
