I know I have not spoken highly of the musical side of Gymboree, but Kendrick needed a class. I needed a class with Kendrick alone. So, this week we have started the Gym class at Gymboree. He is really loving it and I love their focus on language. This week we studied "in and out."

He went in and out of tunnels, barrels, tubes. Put bean bags and rings in and out of holes and basketballs through hoops. He put "Popcorn" in the popper. And, he pulled scarves out of wiffle balls. He loved all the activity and was not at all shy about jumping into the activities.

There are a few songs interspersed which are ok, but are not sung long enough for the kids to grasp. Once is never enough. But, by our second visit he had at least caught on to the "freeze" song where they beat on the air tube and then freeze when the music stops with their hands on their head. The excitement on his face was to die for!

So, until he heads to school this will be our Mommy and Me activity to share together without brother.

I did Gymboree with my son and he loved it! I do Kindermusik with my daughter. I am glad you found something that he enjoys and that you get that one on one time with him. Cute picture!

Sounds like fun! We just finished a Kindermusik class and Austin goes around singing the songs all day. It is so cute!

Looks like fun! We've tried classes like this at our local rec center, but they were never that great. I wish we could have found a great one near by when the kids were little.
