Tonight Michaela had her first gymnastics class. She LOVED it! She was so serious and listened intently. There are only four kids. Two of them are boys and one was kind of bothering her and I thought it was hilarious when she asked him to stop so she could listen. She is so serious. So far I like it so much more than dance….no expensive outfits, no fancy shoes, and no recitals. Ok, so it is only her first class. I think she is enjoying doing something that does not involve the boys. I thought about signing up Joey since we decided not to do winter baseball but I think this individual girl time is good for her. Plus Pete likes those "manly" sports for the boys. LOL I was surprised that they went right into trying things like back bends. She was pretty limber. My limber days are well over.
In my Pilates/Yoga class this morning I noticed just how un-limber (is that a word?) I am. I guess I need to work on that. That is my new class that I am trying once a week and so far I love it. I need to mix it up since I am getting a bit bored at the gym.
Yesterday I pulled the flutes out of the attic for Tyler to use. I decided to pick one up and I was surprised how much I retained. I honestly think it may be kind of fun to pick up some of those beginner books and see if I can rekindle some of my music spirit. I have always missed playing. I wonder if it is too late to take a lesson or two. I could still actually play a scale.
Monday I start reading to one of the kindergarten classes. I love to do that. I get to pick the books and I have lots of neat ones from Michigan that I use. I will be doing that once a week this year and am looking forward to it. Last year I dressed up as Cat and the Hat and read Dr. Seuss books. Those kids called me Cat in the Hat all year. It was so cute. I guess I better get that costume out of the attic.
