Flying Disc Golf!!! | Loft & Learn Family Fun

Disc Golf often referred to as Frisbee golf

Disc Golf is flying disc game. as well as a precision and accuracy sport, in which individual players throw a flying disc at a target. 

The object of the game is to traverse a course from beginning to end in the fewest number of throws of the disc. In just eight years (2000–08), the number of disc golf courses doubled. The game is played in about 40 countries around the world.

We had an absolute ball and have plans to play and introduce this in Idlewild, MI and maybe Big Island, Hawaii. Both settings would provide the perfect atmosphere!

 

Happy Birthday Uncle Sean!!!

Encouraging Children’s Interests! | Loft & Learn Thought of the Day

 

I am so proud of Ace taking the initiative and researching online ways to teach yourself to draw. He found a way to help him draw super hero characters’ which he is fascinated with. It was so inspiring and surprising to see him dedicate such a great deal of time to researching and then practicing the skill until finally he was pleased with an amazing result.

I have to say not just as a proud mama, that I was pretty darn impressed myself. It is so interesting to discover along with your child what their interests and passions are. I never knew that he liked to draw until this moment! Wow, I suppose just exposing our boys to different things and sitting back and observing what they take to is the key.

His little face just lit up as he saw my glee and appreciation of his fine work. I could tell that he was extremely impressed with his hard work. Everyone needs to feel celebrated for their efforts, especially when they produce a pretty cool result.

Although Motherhood has its obvious challenges, the moments like these make the sleepless nights pale in comparison. Being a mommy rocks!!! Great Job Ace.
