In an attempt to keep the TV-monster from spending every waking weekend hour in front of the tube, I signed her up for a bunch of extracurricular activities. Last weekend Naomi started figure skating lessons with the Can Skate program. Yesterday was her second practice and so far she is doing really well and loving it. So very Canadian, eh?!
This weekend was Naomi’s first gymnastics class. She was soooooo excited and loved every moment. She loves the new “leotard” and the fact that she matches with all the other kiddos. My only complaint is that the gym only offers a window for parents to look through (the kids see it as a mirror) and all these parents are vying for a spot at the window so it is almost impossible to see what is going on.
We were happy to find out that someone from our adoption group was in the same class. Even thought the girls hardly knew each other at first they were sharing hugs and “see you next week” wishes by the end of the class. Naomi is at an age where she is interested in meeting other kids from China like her so this just worked out great.
Next week swimming lessons kick in and I am still looking for some sort of music class as well …
