First Day

Today was my first day back to work and Brook's first day of gymnastics! I was very sad this morning when I had to leave :( Travis is off this week so she gets to have fun with Daddy! When I got home she ran to me and gave me the biggest hug and was patting me on the back. I cried again, it was so cute and sweet!

I was unsure of how she would be at gymnastics, but she loved it. It is a parent and tot class but she did not need me at all. She saw all the fun stuff and she was kicking her shoes off to get in the room! At first the teacher did some stretching with them and she didn't want any part of it. She wanted to play but when she saw everyone else following directions, she joined in. Little Miss Emma is in our class so Laura and I had fun watching them.

The room was set up in a little obstacle course. The teacher showed them what to do and then we all kinda began at different things. The slide was first and of course she loved it.

After the slide she jumped on the hopscotch and over the hula hoops. She kept wanting to pick them up and swing them around her!The teacher was at the next thing which was the "cheese" mat where she was helping them do forward rolls. Brook passed it many times until I showed her myself what to do. Yes, I was the only Mommy that did a forward roll. Go Me!
Next there was a tunnel that she crawled through but I didn't get any pics. Then she walked on the balance beam.

She thought she was so big and strong on the bars! She could hold herself for about two seconds and then she would drop.

The trampoline was real long and there was a mirror wall behind it and she loved running down it and watching herself in the mirror.

The rings were at the end and I think this was her favorite! She would scream "swing!" She was really good at them. The teacher would tell her to pick up her legs and she would and hold them up and swing.

The cutest thing of all is that when she is really into something or concentrating she sticks out her tongue just like her Daddy. Travis does this all the time when he is building or working on something. It was so cute!
Here they are at the end of class. The teacher was so sweet and good with them. She put a little sticker on each foot and hand and then one on their nose!
I think the first night was a huge success. I had a lot of fun watching her and doing some of the things with her. Daddy was off tonight so he got to come and watch. Nay-Nay and Coco came too! Brook was so proud to show them what she could do!

Thank you Nay-Nay and Grumpy for the gymnastics class!
