For the kid's birthdays this year we decided instead of a gift to give them an experience. So we choose classes at a gymnastics place near our home. Simon LOVED his first day yesterday. This is his first experience in any type of structured activity but he did great. In the beginning he warmed up with a large group which included 3 and 4 year olds and he was the only new one, so everyone else knew what they were doing and what motions went with the song...Simon first just stood there and stared but eventually caught on and joined in. Then he broke off into just his 3 year old class. He was with three other little girlies (of course)! They are really making them go through the paces and learn gymnastics. He had to practice on the balance beam, flipping over bars, summersaults....as well as other stuff mixed in. He said he wanted to go back again so I took that as a good sign : )
