As many little boys are, full of enthusiasm, bouncing off walls, and overall ball of energy, we put Carson into gymnastics. We decided that gymnastics could help give him have structured and help him with discipline. Though he had fun, he very often didn't listen to his teachers, and one time we just left because he was a big distraction to the rest of the class, so we are going to hold off doing another session for a little while.
A recap of his first session, which might have been one of his better nights.
To begin class they did some warm ups and some stretches.
Jumping Jacks, Hit them! One, Two, Three I am so pumped up!
Cute miss Sydni watching and waiting until she turns 3 to do gymnastics.
Not very flexible, but he got better!
Carson was excited to be chosen to demonstrate how to do a back flip, with the teachers help of course
This exercise they were supposed to put their hands on the hand mats and then do a cartwheel type thing. It was pretty difficult and many didn't understand unless the teacher was right there helping them.
Nice balance beam work buddy!
A little relaxation, why not?
He did manage to listen a little bit, every now and again.
Swings, probably his favorite part.
Way to go!
Got his toes touching the lower bar, great job!
Working on his upper body strength.
Wow, all 3 and 4 year olds folding their arms, impressive.
Carson is pretty good on the flat balance beam as well.
Get those legs up buddy
Besides the swing jumping on the tramp was is favorite for sure.
Now that is some air!
Practicing holding his knees in after jumping.
Until we try it again, though we are not sad that we attempted it, just not right for him now.
