For the First Time

I was so proud of Avery...this week she went to her first gymnastics lesson. She was so excited but so nervous all at the same time. But when we walked in she marched right down to the gymnastics floor and started following directions and meeting her classmates.

I think it did help that she knew several of the girls...mostly from our street and playground. I had to remind her to listen to the teacher and not giggle with her friends. How cute is she??!!??!!

The pictures are not the best but you get the was hard to catch her being still enough to get a good picture. I think she really really loved it.

This is Chris's favorite shot...she had just finished a whole flip around the bar with the help of the instructor and had such a look of total determination on her face. She means business!

And as a bonus Mitchell was there and watching the boys group do their lessons and decided that it looked like fun. He announced that he was no longer interested in taking Tae Kwon Do, but wanted in on the gymnastics lessons...that long trampoline looked very appealing even to me. This is like music to my ears since it saves us a few nights out of the house. thank you son.

I think she's a natural! We sat through many gymnastics meets as both our girls were involved:) I hope they both enjoy it!

Hurray - Go Avery! And most awesome that you will have one less activity to drive to. He'll have a great time with all that gymnastics fun.

what fun! So glad Mitchell decided gymnastics looked fun. I am not looking forward to running everyone around to different stuff. I think gymnastics is a good common ground!
