Ella's 1st Gymnastics Class

Ella had her 1st gymnastics class at DeVeau's Wednesday night. I really didn't know how she would was a REALLY busy day. It started at 9am with her 30 minute dance class, then straight to school at 9:30 (its in the same building)  School is from 9:30-1:30. Cole and I got to visit with Brandy and then we ran over to Bri and Tessa's house to let the little kids play. Cole had a blast with all of Tessa's toys, including her bright pink kitchen, slide and ball-pit. We arrived a little too late for Tessa though, she was really ready for a nap. She was such a good little sport wouldn't have know anything was wrong unless her mommy told you, or you knew that Miss Tessa is a ball of FUN! But Cole and I really enjoyed ourselves and were so glad that we were able to spend some time with them.
We picked Ella up at 1:30 and it was home for naps!!
Ella had gymnastics at 6p, and it was an hour long! I was nervous!! She proved me totally wrong though! She had a blast!! She found me in the observation area twice to wave, but other than that she payed attention to her teacher and looked really engaged! I am sure that I was quite the sight too...the ONLY parent in the obs area with a camera and Flip video thingy. Most parents were reading or chatting with someone...and there I was...snapping pictures and video taping the WHOLE thing! Her teacher said that she could tell that she was a young three and that this was her first class, but she was making improvements throughout the class. Ella wore her new pink leotard once we got home until we had to pry it off of her to go to bed! Which was at 9pm, an hour past her bed time, and she was still wound-up!!!
