parkour practice

A teenager from our homeschool group demonstrated a parkour move for us at the park the other day (I asked him to show us a move because he practices it and we think parkour is awesome), so this teen happily and simply climbed onto a pavilion roof, ran across it, and jumped down.  After seeing this, Cedar got super excited and started doing his own moves all over the playground.  We think running, climbing, jumping, pulling, and other natural movements are a great way to exercise, condition, strengthen, and have a lot of fun in the process. We did quite a bit of this kind of working out last year, but haven’t in recent months.  I’d like to get back into it– it is really a lot of fun for the whole family.

Andrea - Interesting. I had no idea that was. I had never even heard of it. I'm fairly certain I'd breaks something if I tried that. LOL

Tracey - I have never heard of this before! But I think my kids do this naturally. Ha! I make up obstacle courses for them around parks and it keeps them busy! They have to get from one end of the park to the other on a certain route, taking only a certain amount of steps on the ground. They love it. I will have to research this more!

Stacey - So way back in August imsawmthese guys at a local park doing all this crazy stuff on the play equipment. Now I realize this parkour is what they were doing!

Stacey - Sorry, typing from the iPad!

Marvett Smith - Love these images! Gorgeous color and light!
