Little Flippers

The kids had their very last gymnastics class together this week. Bridget has been in the Little Flippers class for two years and George just started in March. It's fun to be able to sit in the gym and watch the kids do their routines. Bridget's confidence has grown so much in the past two years. She started off being very scared of the equipment. Now, she knows what she's doing but still approaches with caution.
This was George's first time performing a routine. I could tell that he was nervous. Normally, he does the routines with a big smile and shows off his silly side. This time, with all of the parents watching, we got to see his shy side.
He was so proud of himself after each routine. I could tell he wanted to let out a big grin and laugh. He held it in well. It was precious to watch.

He wasn't as graceful as his big sister, but he did great with following the routines without being prompted too much. It's not easy for any three year old to follow instructions, but George did great. I wish there was a way to get him to do this at home!

We have been fortunate to have two awesome coaches. They've been with Bridget for two years and she trusts them both completely. They have made the class so much fun for the kids.

We'll have one week off from gymnastics and will be starting back up in June. Bridget will be moving up to a new level and will have new coaches, and because Bridget's new class will be meeting in the afternoon, I moved George to a class on the same day and time as well. Bridget is unsure and doesn't know what to expect from her new class. George. I think, will be a little confused when Bridget goes off to her own class and he has to stay in his. He's gotten used to following her lead. It won't be too long before I'll have another one in gymnastics. I wish they didn't grow up so fast.
