Olivia has been doing gymnastics for about seven months. She enjoys it, but she would rather play soccer this fall, like Jackson does. She is finishing her last few gymnastics classes this month. Her last class included a parent showcase. The girls performed a little dance routine, and then everyone was called up to receive a medal. Olivia was very excited because it was her first time getting a sports medal.
After the awards were given out, she was allowed to show us around the gym and show off her moves.
Her balance and confidence have really improved. When she started the class, she would not walk across the balance beam without holding her teacher's hand.
Tony took an extended lunch to come see Olivia's performance. Afterwards he took us out to eat at Thai Cuisine. We helped ourselves to the free appetizer/dessert bar while we waited for our entrees. I had fried broccoli and spring rolls with peanut sauce.
My meal was the tofu ka prow, with spicy basil sauce. So good. And plenty of leftovers.
The kids got a kick out of the day's dessert, an alien green tapioca pudding with coconut milk.
