When I was 10 years old, I began a tumbling class....kind of old to start something like this, but it worked for me. I did pretty well and ended up teaching classes in my home town throughout high school and when I attended my community college. When I moved away to college, I found a gym and got a part-time job teaching gymnastics, tumbling, and trampoline. I coached pretty much everything at the beginning - recreation classes and team - four nights a week. After getting married, I continued to coach the tumbling and trampoline teams while Jason was finishing his bachelor's degree. The last couple years I was coaching only one night a week until I ultimately ended my coaching "career". That was in 2007.
For the past year, I've asked my family to get Drake a class at my "old" gym for his birthday or Christmas. He got the class for his birthday this year and I was really excited! It's only four weeks and I'm not sure that he's learning a whole lot, but it has been great for him to be able to burn off some energy when we can't get outside. It is definitely different to be on the student end of the class, but it's good. The class is 45 minutes long and goes by so quickly.
I got a few pictures from last night's class, but he moves so quickly that a bunch of them were blurry.
