Gracie had another fun afternoon at her Wednesday Tumble Tots class. Today they opened with the parachute. All of the kids had a blast doing 'popcorn' with the balls, and running under and sitting on the edge to make a mushroom.
After parachute fun, they went on to "centers." Gracie started with a mini-obstacle course. She still needs work going through the rings with out knocking them down (she is super tall!), but she has really become a master of the balance beam. This time the coach had the kids balance beanbags as they crossed. Oh, and Gracie crawled through a caterpillar toy. You may have seen those baby toys where you crawl through. This is a big step because Gracie can't handle enclosed spaces. I was shocked that she went under the parachute, and then to crawl through the small caterpillar. She has come a long way in a week!
Other fun activities: moving on scooters and working on forward rolls, back bends and more.
Gracie cried again this time, but only when it was time to leave. She loves this class, and I am so excited for her. And proud too!
See more tumble tots pictures here. This week she wore the pink leotard, last week it was the blue.
I took plenty more videos as well. I will share two of them.
