Microblog Monday: One More Class

We have one more gymnastics class left.  It is safe to say that we won't be signing up again any time soon.  The last two classes were a little bit of an improvement for Ayden in that he didn't have complete breakdowns and we could at least get him to somewhat participate.  This last Saturday we were back to square one though.  He MAYBE had about 10 seconds that he enjoyed himself and actually smiled.  Otherwise, he wanted nothing to do with being there.

Rylee has done very well in the class and goes with the flow of everything.  She's only had one meltdown, which happened to be this last Saturday also.  It was at the very end of the class when they were doing some activity with an "octopus."  She didn't want to give up the octopus so the other kids could have a turn.  I didn't actually see this happen though, since I was already out at the car with Ayden.

I suppose there's a chance we might sign Rylee up again and we can take turns taking her to the class and having one on one time with each of them.  We'll see.  It definitely won't be this next session though.  One more class and we are done with gymnastics for awhile.  I'm glad we tried it, but now we know that any organized and structured class is not the thing for Ayden.

  1. I think the one on one idea is fantastic and it seems to work wonders for our girls! If you try it, I would be interested to hear feedback.

  2. Do they have a drop-in, free play type of thing? Our community center used to do that. There were the structured classes, but they also had the equipment out and parents could bring their kids for free-play. Not optimal because it was usually so loud you couldn't think. But fun for them.

  3. I so enjoyed getting to tag along to their gymnastics class!!! Both are so adorable! Ayden just has his idea of how the world should operate! I can't wait to get the pictures back and then you will have the forever memory of capturing him smiling and enjoying!! Sweet Rylee just enjoyed the whole event!!! Looking forward to the next visit! Love and hugs and miss already!!! Auntie
