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.
