Joy started gymnastics!! Finally she is enrolled in a class! I have wanted this for her since she turned 3, which happened about the time Rob got a 10% pay cut at his old job. It is one of those things that I wanted for her. I want her to explore different options in life, like gymnastics and dance, maybe even a sport or two. Extracurricular classes are one of those things that I wanted as a child, and something I want for my child.
I want my child to have opportunities in life. I want her to be smarter than me, and I want her to be able to do what she wants and not be held back because she didn't get something in her education. This to me includes gymnastics/dance/sports. She loved her first class, I can't wait to take her to the second one!

I'm glad that Joy liked her class! Emilia started after Spring Break last year and loves it. If I could just figure out a way that the arm of the chair isn't a balance beam! Although I did have to break it to her that she was going to be too tall to go to the Olympics in gymnastics but maybe she could go in soccer.

Sounds like you're settling into the new location really well. Have you found a new church you like?
