Diva has been doing gymnastics for about a year and half now. She LOVES it. Over the course of her gymnastics career the Dudes have been sitting in a little windowed room watching her. Every once and a while they would sneak through the door and try to join the class. My plan was to sign them up the second they turn 3. The facility we go to has a Mommy and Me class for kids under 3. Problem being there is one Mommy and two Me's. Doesn't really work out.
One of Diva's instructor's, Miss Bailey, has watched the Dudes and their friend Fynn whose sisters do gymnastics with Diva. She has seen them sneak into class and how active they are. Three weeks ago Miss Bailey let the 3 boys do a trial class. Fynn's birthday is the day before the Dudes. They are all a little more than 2 1/2. I wasn't sure how the class was going to go. They were so excited to get out and "bounce." The class went amazingly well. I was surprised. Carter only threw one temper tantrum. Last week was even better. Then today was the best it has been. The Dudes love it.
Today the kids all got to do a little "show" and show off the skills they have learned. At the end of the hour all the kids got ribbons and a chance to stand on the podium. It was a VERY. BIG. DEAL.
