I’m not a sporty person. I can swim but I’m not a strong swimmer. I can ride a bike, but won’t win any race. I know some of you may think, it’s not too late to try. But if I’m honest, I might just give this one a miss. I’d rather cheer the others from the sideline, or maybe wait from the comforts of a lovely nice pub.
My husband on the other hand, while he claims not to be good in sports, does gig-rowing (although admittedly doesn’t have time to do it anymore), is a good swimmer, used to fence at Uni, played football and cricket when he was younger, so I guess it’s safe to say T got her interests in sports from him.
At the moment, she goes to gymnastics and swimming class. We were pleased though when she signed up for a rugby game in another school. They are actually lucky to have a teacher who happened to be an ex football player, so it’s not surprising that he pushes his students to do well in sports (among other things of course).
Mr. R was very pleased with his kids, especially when a local rugby coach announced that they were the best team there.
Apparently, little T was really fast, but refused to tackle. I laughed when this was reported back to me. But Mr. R plans to start a football team and include the year 2s. I don’t know what it’s like in other schools, but while the boys can join the football team young, the girls on the other hand have to be older than T. I know, it’s so unfair isn’t it? As parents of a younger girl, we were really happy when he said that he will start them this year. He wants T in his team 🙂
What about you?
Are you into sports?
