Nathan's Trick Class Review

Nathan had his end of the year review for his gymnastics class. I started him in January, so I think he did really well for just 5 months of class!

The theme for the review was a beach party, so the whole room was decorated along those lines. Really cute! Here he is starting out with his warm ups. Nathan is to the right of his teacher, wearing the green glasses.

Those glasses were funny because they were so big! Most of the kids could barely keep them on their faces. Nathan kept putting his glasses down and peeking over the top to see where we were.

Here he is at the end of his warm-up.

Once the warm-ups were done, Nathan was oblivious to the fact that there was an audience in the room at all. He just went about doing the normal things he does in his class. I enjoyed watching him and seeing what he can do with his little body!

Great job, Nathan! This class has been great for building up Nathan's confidence and his strength too.

This activity teaches the kids to get used to swinging on the bar while they are supported. He was swinging back and forth while the ball rolled beneath him, supporting his weight.

Here he is on the balance beam. Unfortunately the lighting in the room wasn't the greatest for picture taking! It was full of bright windows all the way across the room.

Hard to tell, but here he is kicking his legs up high while holding onto the bar on the floor.

At the end of the review each kid was presented with a medal shaped like a star. Nathan has been very proud of his medal and he put it in his drawer full of special things. :) Here he is at the end, sitting nicely with the other kids.

I've enjoyed seeing Nathan in an environment where he thrives. He loves his "trick class" and I look forward to seeing what he can do in this class next year!

I think it's so funny that he calls it his "trick" class. It probably makes him feel tricky--hee hee! He's a cute little boy and deserves credit for sticking with it.

Not only am I glad for him to be able to participate in something so fun, but I'm also glad for you to have found something to keep that little busybody busy for a while. It's cute how much he loves it.

Nahtan did a great job in his class and loves going to the class and I think that this is something that he will do a good job at. He is looking forward to going back after the summer too..WAY TO GO NATHAN...

I love the pictures of him in his "cool" shades! You can tell that he really enjoys this class. You're one busy mom with your kids in different extra activities, aren't you!

I think this class is perfect for him. I always thought it funny that he liked to do tricks before any trick class, like falling on his face. He practiced and practiced to get it just right. He's a cute and energetic little boy. I need to find something like that for Preston.
