For the last several days I have discovered that Corinne is scooting all the way to the end of her bed, dragging her pillow about halfway down and curling up in a cozy little ball to sleep - cuteness!!!
Today I asked Brett to help me get lunch ready for Corinne while I got a bag together so that we could go to the pool this afternoon. He made her lunch, but he also made her art. I give you a very hungry caterpillar:
C has always been a pretty physical kid, she has plenty of options when it comes to rough housing - both her father and her uncle Scott have fun flipping her upside down, throwing her in the air and spinning her around. She loves to climb and swing and roll and spin.
So, when and opportunity came up for us to enroll her in an 8-week gymnastics class at a local gym we "jumped" at the chance! Her first class was last week and, although she had fun, she wasn't quite as excited about it as I had expected...but I had decided that we weren't going to put any pressure on her - she's only 3 after all and this should be for fun! Well, I discovered the reason for her low energy when we got home for the evening and learned that the poor girl had a fever.
This week she was feeling much better and when I told her it was the day of her gymnastics class, she was very excited. She did a great job of listening to her teachers, taking turns on the different apparatus, and trying each activity. After her class was over she wanted to sit for a bit to watch the older girls out in the big gym. They were practicing some tumbling and even though they didn't know it, they were providing inspiration for at least one little girl. I think she's hooked.
I am very lucky to be married to the love of my life, and we have been blessed with two wonderful daughters who light up our lives and remind us what is important. I like to spend time with family, read, listen to music, and watch movies. I love to be outside when the sun is shining and enjoy exploring new places.
