Running a family hooping business from home means that there’s little-to-no separation between hooping and our family life. And that works for us just fine! Lafayette (we call her Laffy) may have just celebrated her first birthday, but she’s already played with more hoops than many adults will ever see. 6 year-old Navi is often a source of inspiration for this column and now declares she wants to “make hoops” like her daddy and me when she grows up. This week I found myself thinking about how other parents weave their hooping lives into their family lives. And more specifically, I wondered how their hooping practice informs their parenting. I posed the question online and got some incredibly thoughtful (and thought-provoking) answers. No surprise, the family that hoops together has a whole lot of fun together. But as it turns out, they get much, much more. Read on for some downright inspirational stories.
