Gymnastics at the Y

Photo by lhin215The first week of gymnastics classes at the Y went well.  Aaron went first, and was apprehensive at first - clung to me and cried - but once I freed him from his grip and ushered him into the gym area, he did his usual fine self.  Parents couldn't really stay and watch, but I peeked in now and then and it looked like he was having fun, and that the teachers were doing a good job with him even though he's the only boy and is by far the biggest (the classes run ages 3-5 and 6-8, and he's 5 1/2).
