Terrific gym reports

We got our gym reports tonight

We got our gym reports tonight full of ‘terrific’ ticks

Rafa’s report notes said he was “charming and strong!” and the comment on mine says, “You are the funniest kid I have!  I can always count on you to remember that we have to go to the pit!”

No assistance required

Guess who got through an entire gymnastics class without Mum having to come onto the floor?

Guess who got through an entire 45 minute gymnastics class without Mum having to come onto the floor to assist me with my listening skills?

That would be, ME!

That would be, ME!

Mum’s comment: whoop, whoop!

The runaway cupcake

We intended to post some gymnastics shots today but our photographer couldn’t take any as she ended up doing Rafa’s class with a rogue Rafael.  A bit like this (photo taken when we got back at home):

Gymnastics!

January 19, 2015
We did a trial class at a new gym tonight.  We got to warm up together before splitting off to our individual classes.

We did a trial class at a new gym tonight. Rafa and I got to warm up together …

My gym adventure included jumping over sharks (not real ones, of course!)

before splitting up into our own classes.

And Rafa did everything like he'd been doing it for years.

Rafa did everything like he’d been doing it for years.  

For the first 20 minutes anyway.  After that he kept running over to join  me in my class.

His favourite thing was swinging like a monkey.  All was well…. for the first 20 minutes anyway. 

After that he kept running over to my class to do what we were doing, or give me a hug, or tackle me to the ground.

After that Rafa kept running over to my class to do what we were doing, or give me a hug, or tackle me to the ground.  See that’s him running back to his class in the left hand corner of the picture… and that’s his super patient teacher with her hands on her hips!

Either way we thought it was great, and Mum thought it was great that we could both go at the same time - so we're all signed up for weekly classes.

I missed this!

I missed this!

He was a natural already doing forward rolls, handstands on the wall, swinging on the bar and walking on the balance beam.  But his favourite thing to do was big jumps!

And Rafa took his first gym class today too.

It says I can can jump over props on the beam, jump from a block to stick, tuck on the bars and do a forward roll!
