#4 Thing to Do in Dallas with Kids

Visit a gymnastics class for free. Every year I call the local gymnastics place and they let your child come for a free gymnastics class. Each year Madeleine had enjoyed herself, but not wanted to sign up for more. This past August we tried again and Madeleine finally wanted to be in gymnastics instead of ballet or tap. So, I asked if they had classes for Everett too, and once he turned three he could be in his own class as well. So, we were going to start in October when Everett turned three, but then it was Thanksgiving and Christmas, so it was not until yesterday that we started gymnastics for both kids at ASI.

The kids had a blast! They each received a chart with the skills that they have to achieve before they can advance to the next class. They each received a sticker because they were able to freeze on the trampoline. I do have an ulterior motive for signing the kids up, I want to learn how to do a cartwheel...
