Ballet and Gymnastics!

June 25th, 2012

Nora started ballet and gymnastics classes a couple of weeks ago and she is loving it. She goes to each class once a week and says she wishes that she could go everyday. The classes are an hour long each and for a little girl whos energy used to be far below a typical childs so far she has had no problem keeping up the pace along with all of the other 5 year olds. Here she is waiting for the first day of gymnastics to start. She was so excited she could hardly contain herself. :)

The only other class Nora has ever been in was a toddler ballet class which was with parent participation. In these classes she is all on her own with the teachers and other kids she has done great with following instructions and being confident all on her own. Until she dived right in we weren’t sure how it would work out since Nora and I have been together all day everyday, so we are thrilled that she is being so independent. I can at least sit on the side lines and watch the gymnastics but parents aren’t even allowed to watch in her ballet class. Needless to say I had a harder time with this on her first day than she did and it’s a good lesson in independence for me just as much as her, maybe even more so. :)
