O. My. Word
Alexandra has 1) NO fear and 2) a talent for gymnastics that I didn't realize.
She did AWESOME today. Tried everything, including the handstands, seat drops on the trampoline, and the thigh-high (on me) balance beam!
This kid floored me. The balance beam station has three beams, one that sits on the floor, one that is about as high as my ankle and the other that is thigh height. Where does she go first? The tallest one. Climbs up on it with NO help and wanted to RUN across. Her coach convinced her she should try walking first!
I didn't even realize she could balance on one foot, let alone balance on a mushroom shaped stool on one foot.
I am SO happy we put her in and I think we will be continuing to put her in until she lets me know it is somethingshe no longer wants to do.
The BAD part abuot today? the 25 mintue screaming, hitting, on the floor tantrum that occured when it was time to leave (and the class was an hour!) Ah well, it means she had fun and used up all her energy!
I will post picture next week. I took my camera, but we got freezing rain last night and the parking lot was a skating rink so I opted to not try to balance me, Owen, ALexandra, a baby backpack and the camera. So next week there will be pictures!
And I just heard a crash so I think I need to go see why Dora is no longer holding her attention!
