This is the best part of our summertime Wednesdays as far as my children are concerned.  They get to have a gross motor extravaganza at the Tumbleweeds gym.  I so wish that we parents were allowed in there to bounce around and jump into the foam pit.  Doesn’t that look fun?!

I wasn’t sure if gymnastics was the right sport for the boys when I was looking into summer activities for them.  I didn’t want them to feel that gymnastics were too girly, which they’re not, but it seems like a greater proportion of girls enroll in gymnastics than boys.  We went over to the gym one Saturday to check it out and the boys were fascinated by all the activity going on.  So, I signed them up.  I’m willing to let them try anything (within reason) once.

As it turns out, it was a perfect choice!  Wildman and Cutie Pie want to stay at the gym all day.  They love it!  The best part for me is that they can be in the same class.  In fact, the class is made up of only 4 children.  Half are mine and half are my friend, B’s!  We sit behind the glass watching our kids and chatting about life.

If only I can figure out a way to swing into that foam pit…


Behind the Glass

Last Saturday we watched wee gymnasts tumble behind the glass when I signed the boys up for a summer class here.

Then we went to watch the doughnuts being made.  Wildman’s favorite part was the “Waterfall of Glaze!!!”

Little Leaguers receive a free doughnut when they come in in uniform.

So much for healthy snacks…
