Gymastics and Trains

Saturday morning bright and early, we took Jocelyn to her FIRST gymastics class! It's called Totnastics actually! It's for 1-3 1/2yr olds! She was the youngest one but took to it right away! One of the parents even said that they were surprised she was so into it so much considering it was her first time! I guess most kids are very shy at first!

It starts with circle time where each child picks a felt square to sit on. Then they sing some songs and stretch! Then for "roll call" the teacher calls each child up and asks their name and then they can get a ball! Jocelyn was super excited about that part and wanted to run right up before it was her turn!

Then we did an obstacle course that they had set up. There will be a different one every week! They could jump off platforms and roll and tuck into a somersault! Then swing from mini bars and even walk on the beam!

After that was free play! Jocelyn's favorite part was finding a hoola hoop! She was obsessed with it!

Then they have the kids gather back into circle time where each child brings up their felt square and then gets a stamp! Apparently the kids LOVE this part and want mulitple stamps on their hands and feet! Jocelyn has an Elmo stamp that she loves to stamp on her hands as well as mommy and daddy's hands! So when she heard about the stamps she really wanted to run right up! We told her to wait her turn but then she started yelling, "ELMO! "ABBY!" But the lady took way too long and of course by the time she got to Jocelyn she was over it! But she did get one stamp that she wasn't super happy about until she got in the car!

Mommy and daddy were exhausted afterwards as was Jocelyn! We hope she loves this class more and more every week!

Jocelyn has started to talk about "choo-choo's" a lot lately too! So we decided to go to The Old Spaghetti Factory in Fullerton by the train station! We watched some trains come in and out before, during and after our meal!

She about scared a server half to death when the first train came by during our meal. She jump up, pointed and yelled, "CHOO-CHOO!!!" The guy was about to put drinks on our table and he too had to jump back and let Jocelyn enjoy that moment! It was funny!

Everytime the train was gone again we would hear, "OHHh noooo, choo-choo bye bye!?" with Jocelyn's hands on each side of her! So cute!

We couldn't leave without getting Jocelyn some traditional spumoni ice cream! Which of course she loved!
