Well, tomorrow is supposed to be more like July in March but I still haven't posted some pictures and such from a few weeks ago. This was the day we took Anna to her urology appointment. It was slated as the first warm day of the season with the prediction of record breaking temperatures. And while it was warm, it was, unfortunately, very windy, and by mid-afternoon, the cool air had started to move back in.
On the way home from the hospital, Anna and I stopped at Target to purchase a birthday gift for one of her classmates. We also ate a lunch of pizza and breadsticks and then rushed home (rush, rush, rush) so that we wouldn't be late for gymnastics.
Okay, I would love to sneak into the gym and photograph my kids because this shooting through a dirty window is just not working out for me. Because it was warm outside, they had opened all of the doors, which caused reflections and glares off of the windows. Plus, I've figured out that the best place to photograph them is when they are on the balance beams in the big gym that run parallel to the window. Well, they didn't use those balance beams this day.
This time, I paid attention to all of the other kids and their cartwheels. Allie and one other older girl were the only ones who could turn decent cartwheels. Allie's body type is definitely one of a gymnast. Some of the girls in the kindergarten class have super long legs - you can tell that they are going to be tall - and they couldn't keep those long legs straight.
I did smile (okay, maybe it was a bit of a smirk) when I realized that the daughter of the mom, who I suspect made a comment about me taking pictures back in December, was just learning to turn cartwheels. She's in the kindergarten class and one the coaches was really working with her on it. #imagymnasticsmom.
After gymnastics, the girls wanted to play in the driveway. They are really into playing outside this year, which is a bit of a relief for us adults. We like to keep them active and tire them out.
