I do ‘nastics’

This has been Becca’s new phrase ever since I told her she was going to start taking gymnastics (and bought her a leotard)!  I’ve been looking for a few months at a couple of places, but finally decided on Lake Murray Gymnastics.  The class for children  ages 1-3 is called Playful Parenting, and basically requires one of the parents to attend class with the child.  I must say I didn’t have my hopes up that they would do much.  I mean, how much can you do with 2 and 3 year olds?  But I was pleasantly surprised.  It was a very organized & focused class.  Becca got a good workout & so did I:)



Here she is ‘walking on the balance beam’.



The front rolls were her absolute favorite!


‘Jumping’ on the trampoline – we’ve got a lot of work to do in this area.  I’ve never thought about how much coordination it requires to jump.


Climbing out of the pit


the tunnel


swinging on the bar…


and falling from the bar


at the end of class they got stamps on their feet


and their hands!


I loved watching how much fun she had.  Tonight was our trial class, but we went ahead and signed her up.  I can’t wait to watch all that she learns.  I love my little gymnast!

And just in case you were wondering, yes I was ‘that’ parent with my camera taking pictures during class!
