Flashback: Physical Education

Friday, March 11th, 2011 at 6:23 am

We were homeschooled, remember, and we were relatively active kids–but “PE” did not rank high on the list of educational priorities. In fact, there was really only one year that I remember us having a formal “P.E.” program.

Flashback Friday buttonToday Linda asks… Was physical fitness a focus in school when you were growing up? Did you have P.E. in elementary school or just recess? Was recess organized games or just free playtime?…

It was the year 1990.

Anna was six, a first grader.

  2. Wow, when I was 8 months pregnant, I was NOT playing hopscotch!

    Enjoyed the pictures.

    Yes! Hopscotch! That would’ve been my kind of PE! (but not if I was 8 mos. pregnant)

    Pregnancy never slowed me down much. Maybe that’s part of why I have seven children!
