Back to school means back to routines and back to extra curricular activity. This year Glamma and Papa decided not to put Lil Bit in as many activities as they did last year. Last year she was in drama, Taekwondo, piano, basketball, soccer and swimming. This year, she will be in piano, gymnastics and maybe drama. She has also expressed interest in the Robotics program at school. So, in essence, she’ll still be busy, just not as busy as she was last year. . . I think.
Today was the first day of gymnastics. As her parents, we know she loves gymnastics, but wasn’t quite sure how she’d feel about being in a class full of beginners. Although Lil Bit has had no formal gymnastics training, she she spent the last two years practicing her techniques, watching YouTube videos and trying to get just the right aerial flip. She was surprised to see that not only did she get to flip but she also got to practice on the bars and the beams. This really tickled her fancy, and so she decided that this is what she’d be doing every Saturday for the entire school year.
Lil Bit was also excited to learn that as she advanced she would participate the annual holiday parade, and even perform during half time at Greensboro Grasshoppers and Greensboro Swarm games as well as other events.
