Gymnastics show

Last night was Grace's "big" gymnastics show where the preschool "Funny Bugs" class had the chance to show off the skills they have been learning for the last 10 weeks. They had three routines - one each on the balance beam, floor, and uneven parallel bars.

Each routine consisted of individual skills (forward roll, straddle, monkey jump, etc.) strung together with the teachers reminding them of the steps and standing nearby to spot the kids. They also tried to do their normal warm up and group activities with minimal teacher assistance.
The parachute group activity.
Unlike during their normal class, the students had to sit and wait until
it was their turn to "perform". Grace did a nice job of waiting her turn
and clapping for her classmates.
