The popular question going around these days.
The girls are enrolled in weekly gymnastics and tennis lessons. I really like how the gym offers normal classes during the summer, in addition to camp type programs, because a regular weekly class seems to work best for us. Tennis lessons are through the town, run by teenagers/college kids and pretty much laid back. There's structure to the lessons but they aren't intended for the next Serena, which is perfectly fine. Not complaining, just explaining.
I also believe in time for kids to be kids. We have enough of schedules and go, go, go during the school year so it's nice to have a break. BUT I'm one of those parents that insists that the learning doesn't end just because school does. The girls have been reading many library books, I still read to them every night, and sometimes they read to me at night. They did receive summer math packets and I want to make sure they complete them. (The school does not require them to be finished.) Emily was working on hers a few weeks ago but I haven't seen her doing so since.
Shortie actually has made a fair amount of baskets. I didn't get any pictures of it but I've witnessed it!
Let's talk gymnastics. A year ago, Allie's coach told me that Allie almost had her backbend, which was one of the reasons why she skipped over the beginner's gymnastic class. Well, I don't know what happened but it took her almost a year to finally get it and then she started trying to kick over. That wasn't going so well at first but one day, she just got it. When I left for work in the morning, she couldn't do it, but when I arrived home that night, she could.
I really need to kick myself into gear and get moving on my sewing projects. I spent two nights this week crafting an Anna (Frozen) tank top for Emily's BFF who is leaving in a few days for Disney. I was really happy with how it came out and she loves it. I'm glad I was able to add some magic to the magic. I'll share it soon.
