Little Tumbler

Last week Ainsley participated in a gymnastics and cheer camp. She loved spending the whole week (8am - 5pm every day!) doing gymnastics, practicing jumps, and learning a cheer routine. She also made lots of friends with the 'big girls'. On the last day the parents were invited to come watch their routine. They also each got to show off some of the skills they learned. Ainsley did three very perfect forward rolls. She's still working on her cartwheel.  Here is the video of the routine. She got to be one of the girls on top of the pyramid (although she was too scared to fall backwards for them to catch her). She's excited to take up gymnastics again later this year!

Grandparents Day Program

Each spring Ainsley's school has a program for grandparents. None of ours could make it this year, but one of m y co-workers 'adopted' her for the day and attended as her grandmother. The kids put on a musical play and afterwards they have a reception in their classroom and do an art project with their grandparents. This year's play was 'Won't You Let Me Take You on a Sea Cruise' - the kids all went on a cruise that featured stories and songs about healthy living - exercising, eating healthy, and unplugging from electronic devices. The kindergarteners sang two songs - F.I.T, and Body Boogie, and then later joined the whole lower school to sing Move It or Lose It, and Sea Cruise.

For your morning laugh, here are the videos of Ainsley and her kindergarten friends singing and dancing their way to health. Enjoy!

Spanish Videos by Ainsley

This week's educational video is conducted in Spanish. Ainsley has Spanish class twice a week with Senora Blanco and absolutely loves it. She especially loves all the songs they learn (you know how much she loves to sing).  This week they made puppets to represent a whole family and sang a version of 'Where is Thumbkin.'
