And so it begins.

I've been thinking for a long time that gymnastics would be a great sport for Nate: he's tough as nails, really wants to do a job right, likes to do things by himself, has a lot of energy, he's really agile, takes direction well, and he's really coordinated. I tried him in a class a year ago but he had just hit his shy phase and just couldn't bear to have the teacher telling him what to do. He's over that now, and frankly he's a bit of a stick-in-the-mud at school; he always wants everyone to sit still and listen to the teacher. Anyway...

Today I took him to "open gym" at a gym about 25 minutes away and he just loved it. The video is the second time he'd ever done this manuever; it only took me about 10 seconds to show him how to do it the first time he stepped up to it.

He's clearly a gymnastical genius. We're moving to wherever Bela Karoli lives, stat.
