Jumping through hoops


Our dear friend gave Emerson gymnastics lessons for his Christmas gift.  I've been looking for just the thing to start him with since before we moved.  I thought maybe dance classes or soccer but after we moved I found this great gymnastics place.  I wanted him to have a dedicated class that doesn't involve me where he could be learning to use his body and have to follow directions.  He has a lot of free play time in our other activities and I wanted this to be about learning some self regulation and discipline along side getting the energy out.


The gym has terrible lighting but here are a few images from his first class.  I am excited to watch him grow and learn here in a small class where he will get to both run and jump and flip and have to wait his turn.  Also, I'll be sitting in the lobby crocheting or cooing at a baby while all that is happening.  Bliss.


{Thank you dear Nicole!}

Ps- E wants you to know that the red parts are the lava and the hoops are the safe spots. :)

Just now seeing this-- how cool! This looks a lot like the facility at LSU where Kent had gymnastics, and the instructor looks like she's great with E and kids in general. :) So glad you guys have this!
