I think they're really enjoying themselves!!  Lots of new things to learn- the hardest being SITTING while friends take their turn on the beam or the mat.  I took lots of pictures and some video too.  There aren't too many of the videos though where nobody's name is mentioned, so I'm not going to post those. 

Mimmie had a prior commitment next week that conflicts with our class time, so we'll start classes March 8.  She will prorate that month, so it'll be $30 plus the $20 registration fee.  $50 first month, $40 for following months.

They did some warm up moving and stretching, and danced for a few minutes.  Then she got out the balance beam.  They did walking, kicking, jumping, and backwards walking.

 Lady did well.  Mater was a little sad it wasn't his turn yet.  Mimmie made me laugh- she counted the lying down as sitting.  Thank you for sitting!  Now it's your turn!

 And then he was very happy, even with only one shoe on.

 And then he was sad again while it was Alice's turn.  Alice really wanted it to be her turn every time too- she kept getting up and trying to step on the beam.  Mimmie worked a lot with sitting and waiting for your turn.

 Perdita and her kicking feet!

 Remy jumping with a little help from Mimmie.

Girl Friday was the best at the backwards walk, which makes sense since she's the oldest.  She also had AWESOME sitting and waiting behavior.

Overall she said she was really impressed with them- even though they milled around for a bit and didn't like to wait at first, they all got the hang of it really quickly.  She always picked the one who was waiting the most nicely to go first.  That's a good motivator.  OH!  I don't get to take a turn until I sit down, and if I choose not to sit down at all, I don't get a turn at all?  Whoa.  I better sit down!

 Everybody did a quick job of sitting when it was time to get a stamp!

Some random dancing!!!  (saying that makes me want to do iCarly and Sam movements and that probably doesn't make sense to you unless you have older kids, but there it is.)
