A Group Of Stahrs

Our Family Life…All Together

Jacob’s Day

Last week was Jacob’s Show Week at The Little Gym.  It’s basically the last day of his semester and the kids get to show off all their new skills to their families.  It’s a big deal because they’ve worked very hard and are excited to show what they’ve learned. 

This was Jacob’s introduction to his show.  See his excitement?

Then the kids were divided into three groups.  Jacob’s group when to the high vault.  This was him jumping off all by himself, which is something I’ve never seen him do without someone’s hand!

Then they lined up and sang on their way to the next station.  “Down by the station…”

This station was on the uneven bars.  This is typically not one of Jacob’s favorites but he did such a good job.  He flipped on the lower bar, kissed the upper bar with his belly, walked back and forth (side-to-side), and hung on the top bar without being held!  See his determination with his tongue hanging out…

Then it was onto the last station.  It was a floor routine and this was where Jacob really showed his stuff!  Backwards roll…

some high kicks…

a monkey kick over the mat…

There was also a donkey kick, pulling his legs up to his toes, and then a big finish…

I love his expression there.  It’s like he’s saying, “Yeah, I rocked that!”

Then there was a little free time for the kids to show off some other skills.  Jacob chose the low beam…

The kids were instructed to sit along the wall and patiently wait for their medals.  The teachers had some music playing.  Jacob decided to jam a bit in line…

Then his proud moment of getting his medal…

This was the group of kids trying to get together for a group photo with the teachers.  I can’t imagine trying to get all those 3/4 year olds in one group for a picture.  I think Jacob was thinking the same thing…

We really love the things Jacob is learning at The Little Gym.  The next semester already started.  We are looking forward to what he learns this time!

Happy Weekend!
