Warren started one sport this week and then added another today: gymnastics. He’d given it a tryout last winter and loved it. It’s just taken us this long to get our act together to sign him up. We put him in the kindergarten-age class with his friend, Seth– the same one he’s playing soccer with– so a familiar face helped him feel at ease.
He’s not the most courageous kid around, so we figured all the tumbling and jumping would do him some good. So far, yes! He ran right in and followed all the instructions given by his teacher. But best of all, he tried everything.
I could see the look of trepidation in his eyes when it came to swinging on the rope and falling into the foam block pit but he gave it a go anyway.
I love when he surprises me. Moments like this make me feel so proud of him.
