So Long Tumbling!

Brooklyn’s very last tumbling class of the year was this last Wednesday. Allan left work early to be there which really meant a lot to her.

Just this last month Payson has entered into the not-interested, want-to-leave phase of little brotherness. He doesn’t want to sit and watch or sit and wait while the big girls are doing stuff. He wants to run around and he wants to leave. And so he was everywhere that evening. I told him to sit down and stay on the bench at one point and he ignored me and was walking to an area that was distracting. I (gently) grabbed his arm and lead him back to the bench. He told me, “No, let me go, that’s rude!”

Ember was there, too. Happy and smiling at everyone.

When I started editing these pictures I blurred everyone’s face at first for internet safety. Then I decided it looks stupid and takes too long so didn’t do it for the rest. That’s why only this next picture is blurred. lol

I love that Brooklyn tries her best and looks really shy and glances at me and Allan after every single thing she does to see if we’re watching and what our reactions are.

She acts so sweet during class. I know she’s going to do so well at public school this year! She loves being around people and her peers! Even though I gave her several days a week with kids through classes and stuff, for my little social butterfly it just wasn’t enough! (This is probably a surprise to most of you reading, she is going to public school this year, I do plan on blogging about that in more detail if I ever find time enough! Sierra is still being homeschooled.)

Watching her jump on the springboard was a lot of fun!

I like how cute she looked watching her teacher and the other kids on the bars.

Her favorite part of gymnastics is working on the bar.

She’s usually really good but she was so distracted by trying to smile at me that she wasn’t paying attention at all. lol

I love that her instructor has them stand and pose at the end of each show day. But for some reason Brooklyn got really shy. The last two times we had show days she had a huge smile and posed and this time she said she didn’t know why but she just felt shy. Cute!

And a new thing her instructor had them do was get a group shot. I liked that!
