Final gymnastics class

This is Shaun's last class for this term. He gets to stand on the riser and gets to make his stand for his applause. Girls are supposed to hold their arms up and point their hands upward but boys are supposed to hold their arms out with palms open or fists closed. This is his end of routine pose.He has worked on many new things in this class. He has practiced summersaults on the beam, back hip circles on the bars, and learns the vault for the first time. We got to watch the mens gymnastics at the Olympics and Shaun and David were blown away at what those men can do. Quite an inspiration!
Pull up on that bridge!
Practicing tuck jumps on the vault.
Shaun is not the shortest but he has shorter legs so he usually needs the spring board closer to the vault than the other kids in his age group.


  1. That's really cool. Madzie's gymnastics class never learned that much! That's why we quit, lol. Thanks for sharing!

  2. You gotta love this kid! Look at the smile of accomplishment on his face. I will add you to my google reader so I can keep up on your blog.
