This Spring, Tom and Alice each had an activity.
Tom decided he wanted to do soccer again, even though his mom kept saying, “Are you sure you don’t want to try T-ball?” Ha!
He was sure, and he had a great time!
He was on a team with his buddies again, and it was a blast.
He did really well this year. Totally chased the ball. Sometimes kicked it.
I mean, he pretended he was a velociraptor while doing it (complete with noises), but he did it!
In Pre-K drama, the two loves of his Pre-K life were on the same team (different from Tom’s), but that didn’t seem to bother anyone involved at all.
Typical Saturday morning during practice:
Ella: “Hey, Thomas!”
Tom: “Hey. How are you doing?”
Ashley: *shyly waves*
Tom: “Hey, Ashley!!”
Alice had gymnastics this spring.
She went to a gymnastics party in January, and was hooked after that.
She loves it!
It was her idea to get a leotard to wear to her class.
No one else wears one. Just Alice. She just wants to fit the part!
She loves doing her tricks and the balance beam.
She started off in a class for 2.5 year olds, and she loved that one. She always participated and loved everything about it.
After she turned three, we moved her to a more independent 3 year old class. I was still there, but she was supposed to do more stuff without me.
That didn’t work so well for her. She really wanted to do her own thing — with me — and not the class.
So there you have it! Alice wants to do gymnastics her way! Shocking. 🙂
And finally, PLEASE don’t give Alice any awards in the future. She hates being awesome.
