Guess who went to Gymnastics for the first time....

AND LOVED IT!!!
Claire went for her first gymnastics class tonight and had a blast!! If you keep up with my blog, then you know that Miss Claire has never been one to attend classes without Mama or Daddy...so tonight was our first ever experience of being away from us and attending a real class atmosphere!! I know all of the other parents were proud of their sweet kids tonight, but I don't think anyone could top me and Shane and our beaming faces the ENTIRE class!! I am so proud of her!!! Not only did she go and participate in everything, she did so well the instructors spoke to me after class about moving her up a class in the next age up as she was too advanced for the class tonight!!! I was blown away and speechless, if you know me, that rarely happens!!! So she is moving up to the class of girls already in kindergarten next week...

Here is my little gymnast tonight before bed in her "Little Gym" shirt that was her gift tonight!!

1 down, 2 to go....school starts next week and dance the week after that!!

Oh course they are going to move her up. She is such a little monkey! So ADORABLE in her gymnastics outfit with her bow in her hair. She could win the next gold just by how cute she is.

You know she takes after her Nana being so agile and so coordinated - lol! Stop laughing Shane!

I am so happy and excited she likes it. This is a great start for getting her into the class environment.

Hi Rachel, I'm not sure which link I clicked that brought me to your blog, but your kids are just adorable so I thought I'd leave you a comment and let you know I stopped by!

That is so funny that Claire has on that purple leopard print outfit. I stocked that outfit when I was at the store last week. I thought to myself "this is cute, I wonder if it would fit me?"
Claire can I borrow your gymnastics outfits for Aunt Tara's bachelorette party?

I'm back on. I just got off and told Denny that Claire's first day of gymnastics was last night and he said "she's cute" and I said "do you want one" and he said "what" and I said "a cute little girl" and he said "not now".

Hi Rachael! This is Ella's mommy. Yes, I grew up in Springdale and went to Elmdale, and SHS. I think I was a year younger than Tara and your mom actually use to pick me up from school when I was in the second grade :0) Small world! Your kiddos are adorable...I'll check be checking back on your blog!

Claire loved this class. She had a big smile the whole time. Her mom and I loved watching her. She may have a future in gymnastics...
