I have this photo framed in my house. (Apparently, I actually used develop & frame photos back before I blogged.) As I looked at it today it seemed a perfect sendoff to Summer which will end for us this week. Next week we start Mother's Morning Out in a church program 2 mornings a week, a Kindermusik class and a GYMNASTICS class. The kids loved Kindermusik this Summer, so I am sure they will have an equally wonderful experence this Fall. The gymnastics class just popped up on my radar screen, but sounds like a great way to help them burn off some of their 2 year old energy in a safe way.
A couple of days ago, P decided to venture into jumping on furniture. I really do try to run a tight ship around here--shoes off when inside, no standing/jumping on furniture, etc... So, you can imagine the look of pure glee on P's face when he realized that he could BOUNCE on furniture. I informed him that he could jump on the floor, NOT on furniture. He climbed down and attempted to jump from the floor, then said, "Jump on floor HEAVY, Mommy!"
Then, yesterday while I was on a very important phone call, they took extreme advantage of my inability to lecture them and played "climb da mountain" on my bed. Here's hoping gymnastics is an outlet and not an encouragement to do more of these wild tricks! (Somehow I think this is just wishful thinking!)
