A few months ago Kennedy started a gymnastics class at a gym here in Camas. It was a little chaotic during the summer months (she had a few crazy boys in her class), but she is now in a class on Monday afternoons with Lauren and a few other girls. She really loves it and I think it's great for her coordination. Almost daily, she will ask "Is it gymnastics today?" I really wanted to sign her up for a dance class, as well, but I think gymnastics is more suited towards her personality at the moment. Maybe we'll rethink ballet for next year.
I'm always amazed at the people who have the patience to teach preschool aged children. Often their class is like herding cats, but this sweet Bulgarian man never seems to get flustered. He likes them to pay attention, but he directs them in a very positive and patient way. He's great at keeping them moving and switches activities often so they don't get bored.
We're probably not Olympic bound, but it's great fun for Kennedy!
