(This is the third in a series demonstrating how easy it is to homeschool by using everyday moments like these during our recent vacation as teaching opportunities)

My husband decided early on that he’d like the kids to attend half-day kindergarten, mostly for the fun of it.  And what do the kids say their favorite part of kindergarten is?  Well, besides recess, gym class is a close second.

We love our homeschool gym classes, too.  Here are some of our gym classes on vacation:

Jumping on our cousins trampoline until the sweat pours down our faces and we look like we just had showers.  Mom loves how we sleep at night.

When’s the last time you brushed up on your lasso skills in gym class?  Here we are at the Fielding Garr Ranch on Antelope Island located in the middle of The Great Salt Lake.  Gym, history, bison biology, etc., etc.  It’s a homeschool bonanza!

And this is sadly as close as Chris came to riding a horse, cow, or bison 🙁  But, at least it doesn’t buck!

Skateboard skills and helmet safety class with our instructor, Tim, the daredevil 3-year-old.

Look at those happy, sweaty faces!  The Classic Fun Center and it’s huge selection of bounce houses, climbing structures, and a skating rink kept the kids happy and breathless for hours.

Gym is my kids’ favorite class, too!
