Around Christmas I was looking for the perfect Christmas Gift for Riley. I wanted to get her something other than toys. Riley is a very active 2 year old. She loves jumping, singing, dancing and being the center of attention. If I was that cute I’d be the same way. Sorry, sappy mommy moment. So I looked at activities to put Riley in. I did a search for local Gymnastics classes for her age range. I ended up picking a little place in Chester that was 5 minutes from the baby sister and on the way home. Win Win! So for Christmas I bought Riley the classes and wrapped a gymnastic suite. Riley did not understand what the present ment when she opened it but we did and so did the grandparents who were there Christmas morning. In January Riley started her classes and immediately fell in love. Now these classes are not just for Riley but for Mommy and Daddies to participate as well. I think I was just as excited as she was the first day. She gets to do all the things she loves and I get to be a part of that.
We are two months into classes now. I am proud of how much he has learned and grown just in these past two months of class. She does have a tendency of wanting to go hang out and tumble with the big girls. I have to run and catch her and bring her back to her class.
In the matter of a couple months my baby girl will be going into the next stage of classes without me. I’m not sure how well I am going to handle “sitting on the sidelines.”
Her favorite things to do at Gymnastics –
*Watch the older girls tumble
*Blast off after warm up
*Forward rolls AKA Flip
*Jumping on the trampoline
*Going through the tunnel
*Flipping on the bars
I would love to get her another cute outfit to wear to Gymnastics! I’d love any advice you may have where to order some.
Here are some pictures from her classes over the last 2 months. She now insists we take a picture before and after each class. Man I love her.
