Extreme Toddler Gymnastics

....or 'mas-ticks as Austin and Logan call it.

Wednesday was Austin and Logan's second day of gymnastics. Once again, my friend Anne steered me in the right direction. This is right up Austin and Logan's alley, although Mommy has a wee bit of a heart attack each time we go (Even if you don't want to watch the whole video, you gotta watch the last 55 seconds to see why Mommy needs a Big Girl drink at 'masticks!!).

Austin and Logan are the only two in the class, so it's kinda like private lessons! They start out doing exercises and warm ups and then they run through these series of "obstacle courses."

I'm amazed. The boys are doing flips, cartwheels, hanging, swinging on rings, everything. Oh and of course, flying!! Once you see the video, you'll see why they wake up every day wanting more gymnastics.

(Austin and Logan are in a big ole gym and Nonnie and I are in the "waiting room" area, I'm videotaping through glass obviously!)

That is fantastic. Do they sleep good after that? They really are 110% boys. Sophia said "I do it too Mommy" She is so girly she would probably get hurt with in 2 seconds..LOL

How funny. Bella LOVES gymnastics and amazes me at the things she learns there. This summer she actually bungee jumped. I would have bet money against that one! She loved it!

Bobbi said...
