Happy Illustration Friday! This week's prompt is "double".

Remember recess at school? I remember jumping rope with those big thick school-provided ropes. "I LOVE COFFEE, I LOVE TEA....", everybody chant!

To this day, I still love to jump rope. I've just recently mastered cross-overs! Then there's those who do double dutch. That, I've never done. Have you? Doesn't it look like fun?

Jump in with me?


  1. Given my coordination, you are better off jumping with the dog. Still, that brings back many memories. For an old grade school past time, it is pretty darn good exercise. Try jump roping for 30 minutes and I'll be you'll burn more calories than most of those ablaster/thighmaster/bowflex machines.

  2. Ooooh, I used to love double-dutch!

    And I remember this jump-roping chant:

    Dressed in yellow
    Went upstairs to kiss a fellow
    Made a mistake
    Kissed a snake
    How many doctors did it take?

    Okay, that's just weird!

    Put your illustration is fantastic!

  3. Hi Abby,
    Ahhh this game for girls!
    Very difficult!!
    (I confess that once I tried and ended on the floor with a sore elbow)
    Very beautiful your illustration!
