Gymnastics

I said earlier that I'm a proud dance mom, well I'm also a proud gymnastics mom. Little K did the spring session of gymnastics at Corona and loved it! She was in a group with 5 and 6 year old girls. During the 1.5 hour sessions, they moved around the gym from the floor to the beam, the bars, the trampoline, and the foam pit.

Unlike dance class that happens in a studio behind a closed door, the gym is viewable from the sitting area so I've been able to watch most of the classes. At the last class though, parents were invited to follow along after the warm up. It was fun being so close to the action.

Just like with dance, Little K is very serious about learning the moves. She works hard but also goofs off with the other girls. In the end she got her certificate and earned three of the 5 badges for her age group. To be honest, I'm not sure what they all mean, but I do know that Little K really loves gymnastics!

Without dance class this summer, Little K has signed up for more gymnastics. We'll keep signing her up as long as she loves it!

  1. It looks like she had a great time! And well done with the beam. We did gymnastics when the girls were younger - but haven't in a few years. Glad to see you found a good place to do it.
