We would like our children to be active in sports when they are a little older. I think it provides a great learning opportunity on many different levels. But I'll probably wait until BE shows interest. He's a little timid at times, and unless it's HIS idea, he's not likely to participate... He's getting better though so I have hope
Alex isn't old enough for activities in our town. I think they need to be 4 to join things like T-Ball. So when he's old enough we will put him in sports, starting with T-Ball. We won't push him to keep doing it if he doesn't like it. But I at least want him to try different sports out. Lately he's really been getting in to baseball so we shall see.
I was in the Parks and Rec office signing up both kids for things this summer. But then saw the cost of dance and decided no way. The class was $56 for 6 weeks, then they required both tap and ballet shoes and the cheepest I could find were $20 each so it would be over $96 (not including leotards) for a 6 week class and that wasnt' going to happen. So just Seamus got signed up (T-Ball is only $27 for 6 weeks!)
She bugs me almost daily for dance class, she is in love with dancing and I know she'd be good at it. I'm debating using some of my student loan money in September to sign her up for the Fall class.
Elias has been in a music class since he was 4 months and he has done some swim lessons but never completed the sessions due to ear infections. In the spring he did a mixed sports class at the Y learning about soccer, football, and basketball. If he wants he can start an instrument whenever he asks. He is also really ready for cub scouts talks about going all the time. Shame they don't have a boys version of daisies.
Thank You Justine *SandKmommy* for an awesome siggy
Tiger Scouts is the same as Dasies. At least when I was a girl scout (8-18yrs old) the Dasies were 5-6yr olds, and Tigers, then were 5-7yr olds (my brothers were in them)
Its for 1st graders. I called BSA and they said as long as the child is in 1st grade they can be a Tiger Scout even though it says 7yrs old (like Seamus for example just turned 6 but will be in 1st grade and wont turn 7 till 2nd grade, they allow him in because he will be in 1st grade, but we're not doing BSA due to their political stances)
Yup. It's just they have to be in first grade.
We're going on our third year of Boy Scouts so I can answer a lot of questions on it. ((Or well, since I kinda don't have any to do with it I can ask John and tell you what he says. lol!))
