gymnastics

Alex had a gymnastics class this spring, and they ended with a little show for all the parents and grandparents.  I forgot to invite all the grandparents (oops!) so this blog is for you!

           Balance beam kicks, and flipping on Alex's favorite thing, the monkey bars!

Above is an action shot of Alex doing a summersault.  This took him about 6 weeks to learn, so Dave and I were cheering really loud here :)
And he got a ribbon and stamps on his score sheet...that made him proud too.
About a week earlier Alex told me that he didn't like gymnastics and we even left a little early before stickers and stamps (that's a big deal).  So we probably won't be doing it again any time soon.  I was amazed by how some little girls could do flips and jumps with little to no effort.  Alex would try and try and could hardly pull himself up on the monkey bars...I think he's got genetics against him on being a gymnastics star :)

Alex looks pretty happy in the pictures, but I guess little kids change their minds a lot (at least mine does) :) Kate goes to her first tiny tots tumbling class tonight and I'm curious to see if she likes it or not.

I think gymnastics is a right of passage all kids must endure. I remember mine. Then there was ballet then tap ... Alex is doing those next right ;)

It was fun seeing all of you again. Glad you made it back safely. Alex looks cute in his class. Hopefully I will see you again soon.
