Gym class...

Much to the embarrassment and dismay of my brothers - I enrolled Max in a "Mommy & Me" gymnastics class this summer. All summer we have been going to Hodgini in Jasper every Tuesday from 10:30 -11:30 (with two of my teacher friends and their little girls). My brothers were adamant that Max should NOT be going - they had many reasons:) ha ha...but I've tried to convince them that it bascially just stretching out, exercising, helping Max follow directions, listen to teachers, etc. And I got to interact with him in this setting too - which was so much fun!

We honestly had a blast and we were both sad when we had our last class this past Tuesday:(His teachers were AMAZING and I think they all had a sweet spot for Max since he was the only little boy most of the time:) I don't think there is anything to be ashamed of at all - and I'm so glad we took this class, Max was such a little man and acted sooooo grown up!! Also, he loved hanging out with his best buddies - Lydia and Kennedy! Here are some pictures from our last class: Max, Kennedy, and Lydia - the little gymnastics monkeys:)

After class, we all headed to Lydia's house for some yummy lunch, some splashing in the little pool, and playtime in the sandbox - while the mommy's got to spend some time catching up:) I just love days like these...with friends like these:

glad you had a good time! gymnastics is wonderful for discipline and coordination! and most male gymnasts are wayyy stronger than any other "manly" sports person!

Emma loved looking at the pictures of Max and Lydia! BTW, my niece Bryce goes to Hodgini's since moving to Jasper and she LOVES it.

Nothing to be ashamed of... but knowing your brothers I'm sure they had a thing (or 2) to say about it!
