We’ve had a really fun diversion for the last couple of months. Carson took a class at the community center. We called it “gymnastics” but it was kind of pre-gymnastics. I also call it “get out of the house and let my kid run around for 55 minutes under someone else’s supervision.” The best part was that it was a STEAL! $25 for 3 days a week for 2 months. Turns out that was actually a little TOO frequent for our family, and we missed a few days, but it was well worth the money.
Carson LOVED it. It’s good for me to see him in situations like this, because he seems to do really well in group environments. (Hear this mama breath a hugh sigh of relief.) He saves his dark side for the private sector. Carson was a great listener, he was motivated by the action to obey his teachers quickly, and he was a quick study. These pics aren’t fantastic, but I think they really capture Carson’s excitement.

The teachers (2 college guys) did a good job of being patient with a bunch of preschoolers and challening them.

There were about 8 kids enrolled, but usually averaged about 4-5 at a time. They did LOTS of obstacle courses.

Carson got really confident at walking across these “beams.” There was another set that was even higher than this one!

And this is what Sydney and I did each time! What you don’t see is a stroller tray full of goldfish crackers that usually kept her going. Soon it will be her turn!
