Perhaps Not The Greatest Show On Earth...
...but Danny and Parker were justly proud! This week has been Show Week at The Little Gym. Clare had her gymnastics show on Monday night, which was so similar to last time around that I didn't do a repeat post. This morning it was Danny's turn. And since this has been his first independent class (as in, Mommy gets to drop him off and then go for a walk with Amy and Jennifer), his show is something to blog about.
Their teacher assured us over the past weeks that the boys had been working very hard on their "routines," and it was pretty cute to watch them in action. Of course, there were a few awkward moments in between, where Danny decided to get clingy, but he always snapped out of it in time to perform. The morning turned into a semi-private class, too, as one of their classmates never showed, and the fourth had a meltdown early on and had to depart.
Parker's dad Bill and I witnessed floor, bar, and beam routines, in addition to the always-popular medal ceremony. Parker's skills are more developed than Danny's, but they both get golds when it comes to effort, enthusiasm...and cuteness, naturally.
