Gymnastics Graduation (by chris) March 8, 2013

Last Saturday Henry graduated from Gymnastics for the second time.  We started star gymnastics in the fall.  Which at Henry’s age is just running around, climbing and jumping around in a padded environment.  He liked it so much we signed on for the winter session as well.  Henry loved it again.  We had a few rough classes in the middle were I was doing more of the activities than him but we persevered and he bounced back.  For his last class he was in a crazy excited mood where he wanted to do everything.  I could barely keep up with him(and sometimes didn’t as you will see).  Twice he ran up to the somersault station and started to do them without me holding/guiding him.  These things are better seen that described so here are some pics.

I find I looked crazed in this picture.  Like I am about to attack someone who hurt Henry.  In actuality he fell on hiso wn.

Me shaking my sillies out.  Henry apparently didn’t have any sillies that needed to shake out

Rope Swing and somersault

And now the piece de resistance.  Me not keeping up with Henry as he suddenly decides it is time for the foam pit.
