A Busy Week and it's only Tuesday!

So far this week has been event filled. Spencer is in a week long swimming lessons session again. He received his Salamander report card last Friday at the end of his session. He received a few more check marks on it towards his Salamander badge. He seems to be progressing and that's all we're interested in right now. He has a ways to go yet to move to the next section.

We decided to try out the introductory session of gymnastics for the 3 and 4 year olds that they were offering this week too. It's only 4 days long, a half an hour per day but for $10.... who could resist!

So yesterday was our first session. There are 18 kids in his class and the room was loud! Lots of activity going on. All the kids were divided into groups of 6 and they rotated through each area of the "gym". The large room above the arena was converted to the "gym".

Our first section was the balance beam. Here he is... all by himself! On the high balance beam...

He loved doing somersaults on the tumbling mats too! He loved doing somersaults so much that he did so many of them to only stand up in front of me at the end of the mats and tried to walk forward only to find out that the room was spinning and he ended up walking in a semi-circle and falling on his butt!

The only thing I wasn't impressed with is that I had to participate. Don't get me wrong, it's not that I didn't want to but I was expecting instructors there to supervise. I want Spencer to be able to take instruction from other people and get consquences for any inapropriate actions if he misbehaves. I want to understand that he has to listen and not just "do his own thing".

So we're off in about an hour to his class again. It's good to see that he wasn't the only little boy either. It was almost 50/50 split for boys versus girls.

Todd's off on his 4 days off starting tomorrow. Thank goodness! I'm tired and I need a rest! He's been working extra time the past week or so though. He was scheduled to have 6 days off in a row and ended up working 2 of them in OT. He stayed for OT last night too to get a job done that needed to be done for the next shift. It'll be good to have him home!

Until our next post..... take care!
