    Last night was my 3 y/o granddaughters first gym program.
    It was so cool to see all the different classes and it went wonderfully
    even considering no one had practiced in 3 weeks. It was scheduled for
    Dec 15th and we had a storm and no power so it was postponed.
    She's only 3 and has been in gym for almost a year now. She loves it.
    Has already went up one level.
    She also is the youngest in her trampoline class.
    Before her the youngest was 5 and the others 7, 8 and 9.
    The gym teacher tested her and said she was ready.
    But may not be able to go the whole hour, just a half hour.
    I agreed and well, um :) we were wrong, she didn't want to stop
    after an hour. :dance: She even asks to go on the days
    her class isn't scheduled.

    I loved seeing all the different levels of classes do their stuff.
    There were two showings and after the 2nd we tried to leave
    after her class was done but NOPE, she wanted to stay and watch
    all the other classes, did her clapping thing for each group.
    As the older kids did something she would happily proclaim
    "I'm going to do that when I get older" :)
    She was so cute. Her mom put her hair up in braids for the program.
    These kids really give their all and I love it when the older kids
    help the younger kids, which is all the time.
    Hope you all don't mind my sharing my little granddaughter with you.
    Here's some pictures of her. I haven't downloaded the gym pictures yet.

    She's adorable.

    And the great dane, does it have blue eyes, ? I know a lot of white cats with blue eyes are deaf.

    To show you how big the Dane (Mozart) is,
    here is a picture of her standing and him sitting.
    She adores him, when she sees him she says
    I love you Mozart :)
    When she's around she is the only one able to walk him
    cause she won't let anyone else do it and he's so gentle.
    And yes Angie, he does have blue eyes, pretty blue eyes.
    (Excuse Grandpa's belly on the side of the picture) :D

    gymnastics is a wonderful sport! starting her early is great too. My oldest dd is a gymnast. This is her final year as she's a senior. She had a bad year and didn't make it far enough to compete in college. she'll compete her last year as a level 8. She started when she was about 11 I think. she is going to coach as her career. she's already doing classes for kids your granddaughter's age and loves it.
    Oh and beautiful dog! is her around her much and is he good with her? It looks like he is. We're considering another fog in the future and a great dane is one that has been recommended to us that might fit with our family.
