Each class starts with a bell ringing song.
LM knows the routine after three months - get the bells, sing and shake, return the bells.
Then there are class activities, but this is also where LM usually runs off to play on the equipment.
However, the big parachute activity brought him back into the fold.
This is Mr. Joe, LM's teacher.
Running under the parachute is fun!
LM loves to help clean up.
Then, its actually time to explore the gym.
Mr. Joe always puts on good music, which makes the boy dance.
And occasionally, contemplation is apparently in order.
Here, Mr. Joe and LM had a little convo on the uneven bars...
OK, on to the circle.
I don't know what else to call it...
They would jump in the circle, then climb out and run down the wedge mat.
That was the "skill" we practiced over and over and over.
This was not a "sanctioned" activity.
Next up, jump four times and then somersault down the wedge.
It's still a two man task...
Not that he doesn't try to do it HIMSELF!
Then, everyone's favorite - ball time!
(And unsanctioned hoop time, brought on by another kid and captured by our boy)
No, I'm serious - hoarding.
He tries to get all the orange balls over into this corner of the gym.
And keep them.
Soon enough, it's time to put the balls away, balls away, balls away.
One last swing, and then circle time for the end of class.
Then it's goodbyes and hug time for Mr. Joe
And hugs for Daddy.
Love this one.
So, we had fun at Little Gym over the past three months - it definitely grew on him, and he learned a few things. We will most likely return in the future for other things. But, I have to say I'm looking forward to a Saturday free of an obligation. We'll have those soon enough when he's older, so for now, it's summer and time for a break.
See you soon.
