Grace had her 1st gymnastics class yesterday, and we all had a blast! Cole was the one who decided Grace should take this class, he went and saw the gym, and talked to the owner, so I had no idea what to expect. I just thought it was going to be a toddler play class, but I was pleasantly surprised to find out it was a beginner gymnastics class. The gym is called Star Dust Gym in East Bridgewater.
The teacher Miss Racheal is fantastic! She had the kids do some stretches, then some running, then they practiced wheel barrels, donkey kicks, hand stands, 2 legged jump, swinging from the bar, jumping into the foam pit...and this was all just in the first class! Grace did a great job and even went to Miss Racheal and let her use her to demonstrate some of the new skills! Grace even was the one who jumped in the foam pit first.
It was so great to see Grace start to open up to others and come out of her shell. We all know she's a crazy, wild woman, but she is so shy around others. Grace has class once a week and on Friday's she can go to open gym if we went, so we'll try to bring her twice a week when possible.
We are trying to get Grace involved with as many activites as possible before the twins come, we don't want her to get lost in the mix. So I'm currently researching and calling Pre Schools, dance classes, and learn to skates. I'm also making appointments for Grace to go to a dentist and an allergist. We're also trying to get Grace into toddler EI group as a community child. We're just trying to get Grace involved in as many things as possible to keep her busy and to try to get her ready for Pre School. In addition to this sometime between now and next fall we need to potty train Grace and get rid of the binkie...oy vey!
