We did it! We joined The Little Gym! Since Daddy had the day off (he's off every other Tuesday) we decided to have our trial class be this morning. We are now enrolled in the 10:45 Tuesday class (which will be great b/c Daddy can take Jackson every other week!)
He did so well! At first, I think he was overwhelmed with all the little boys. There are about 8 boys in the class (two Harrisons and TWO Jacksons!) He just stood their watching everyone. It's a Parent-and-Me class, so Adam and I were both on the mats with him. After about 10 minutes, he really warmed up to the teacher, Miss Janine....it was pretty funny though. They ring the bells at the beginning of class, and then sing a song about putting the bells away (he loved that) and by the end of the class, he was going over the kids and taking their bells to put away for them!
He followed directions pretty well. Whenever Miss Janine spoke to give direction, he ran up to her and was normally the first to do whatever she wanted them to do. He jumped off the wedge, he hung on the bar, he walked on the beam, and even did somersaults on the rolling octagon! I was pretty proud of him! He really loved the bubbles and the balls, too!
We LOVED the class and can't wait for the rest of the semester!!
And I promise I'll take my camera the next time! (without knowing what the class was about, I didn't want to lug that thing around just yet!)
