WARM-O-RAMA:

Each PAX selected their favorite warm-o-rama exercise and led us through it.

THA-THANG:
We moseyed to the top soccer field where each PAX led their favorite field/movement exercise.  The PAX soon learned that paying attention to what the man before you called was of significant value

We moseyed to the playground and soccer field where we repeated the same process.

We moseyed back to the AO.

MARY:
A couple of PAX led us through their favorite ab-o-rama exercise.

COUNT-OFF & NAME-O-RAMA

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
F3 challenges us to be leaders in our communities, homes, jobs, etc.  But how can we be leaders if we aren’t comfortable calling out stupid exercises with our friends in the dark?  How can we be leaders if we don’t listen and know what has happened in the community, home, job?  We can’t.  We are called to lead and we are called to know what is going around us.  Reaching out of our comfort zone to help others is what we should be doing.

“we are what they grow beyond, that is the true version of all masters”  – yoda

I not only spent some time with my 2.0 prepping for the 2.0 workout this weekend, but I also spent time watching Star Wars on Netflix.  This quote from Yoda really hit me because if we replace “masters” with “fathers” then that should be our goal.  That our 2.0s grow to be better people than we are.  That they grow to love one another, love God, and do more to make this rock a better place to live.  Our goal as fathers is to teach them the ways to do that and to eventually equip them to be strong enough to go out into this world and make it a better place.  I encourage you to go home, teach your kids how to be strong, how to love God, how to love others, and how to prep them for taking over the world.

This took awhile as we had multiple Friendly New Kids (FNK) to name, but it was fun.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
“greatest teacher failure is” – Yoda

I was watching Star Wars and Yoda told Luke Skywalker this quote.  It means that when we try something we may fail, but we learn from those failures, and we get back up and try again.  What did we learn if we fail?  We learn not to do it that way.  What if we learn if we don’t try?  Nothing, and again we have failed.  I encourage each of you to go out and fail, learn from it, and do it again.

2.0s in attendance were Charger, Fierce, Herminey, Leah, Chicken Nugget, Tumbler, Danger, Camelback, Jump Shot, Yoda, Champ, Warrior, Speed Demon, Brotherman, Stryker, and Haley.

MOLESKIN:
Lots of thunder but the 2.0s powered through and were super pumped to participate and get named.

I also have a confession to make, I dropped the ball and 2.0 workouts got put on the back burner for far too long.  I feel bad and I promise not to let it happen again.
