Future olympian

27 Jan

Last night was Braxtyn’s first gymnastics class and let me tell ya- he absolutely loved it. I signed him up for a 6 week parent/tot class. With it being winter and being stuck inside the house the majority of the week I thought it would be a good idea to find something to do that gets him out and burning some crazy, toddler energy!

He did better than I thought he would on the balance beams. Great, actually. There were three of them- the highest being about 3 feet off the ground and he barely held onto my fingers as he put one foot in front of the other and walked the whole length, keeping his balance the entire time! Pshh, he didn’t even need me.

His favorite was the trampoline. He’s been into jumping on his bed lately and as soon as he figured out what the trampoline was all about he had a blast.

I was a tiny bit nervous at first because Braxtyn is usually shy around strangers, and the instructor was obviously a stranger. I was pretty shocked but happy when she called him over to show him how to do a somersault, and he went running over to her. Big boy.

Anyway, it was a success and we can’t wait for next week!

      Uh oh, the next Olympics? Hmmm… I think he may be the one jumping spastically on the trampoline attempting to do somersaults then 😉
