I searched High and Low for a place to put both girls in (that would work with my schedule) and finally The Little Gym was the place.
We started class this week and the girls did great. They are in separate classes, which is great, so they can meet new people their own ages.
Here is Kallie playing with the parachutes. Kallie jumping off the bounce mat! (Mid-air)
Kallie was great! She followed directions and stayed with the class (which impressed both me and the teachers). She was fearless on the balance beams and walked across them like they were nothing. The instructors asked if she had done any gymnastics before because she was so good..or is the right word fearless?
Shantel waiting to flip over the mats. Shantel's turn with the parachutes!
I think the year in dance was helpful. I don't want to brag, (ok I guess I do, isn't that what a blog is for?) but Shantel was AWESOME. her technique was great and she was also fearless. Walking backwards on the balance beams, jumping on the spring board...she is a natural.
The instructor came up to me and told me how great Shantel was..I thought her we go they tell all the mothers this, but then she added that Shantel may be ready for the advanced class for her age group. WOW! So we will see what the next few weeks bring and see if she really can move up.

My Kindergartener! I can't believe I am sending Shantel to Kindergarten. How time has flown. She was excited and nervous at the same time. She loves school but was afraid of making new friends. I assured her that all the other kids felt the same way. Walking to school on that first day she was scared, but as soon as she saw her teacher she ran for the line and went inside. It was great to see her go. I felt like the only mom not crying. Looking around at all the families wishing their kids off in tears, I laughed and thought yeah! This will be a great year for her.
Her first day went great. She ran right to the door and barely said good bye. I asked Miss Chris how she did and "OKAY" was the response. She'll learn and get the hang of it!
