Jackson started gymnastics last week. I was lucky to find out that there was a class for his age group that meets at the same time as Lizzie's. So now they both get to go to gymnastics during the same hour each week!
Jackson's teacher is a patient patient woman. I don't know if she has any kids herself, but she knows how to work these 3-year-olds and MAKE THEM do what they are supposed to do. Jackson has been overly excited his first 2 sessions and she has to remind him at least 25 times during the 45 minute class to "sit down Jackson" or "it's not your turn Jackson" or "come back here Jackson". His line is, "Jackson's turn" repeated over and over and over until his teacher acknowledges him and tells him he has to wait until the other kids are done.
Here he is with his cute teacher. And the other picture is of him sitting on his butterfly mat, not so patiently waiting for "Jackson's turn!"
The first video is 59 seconds long and the second video is only 6 seconds. (I think his teacher likes being able to throw him around a little.) They do a miniature version of the vault in this class. It's so cute!
He loves having his own activity and his own teacher. So, who knows how long we'll stick with this gymnastics plan for ol' Jackson, but for the meantime it works for all of us.
