This morning we took the kids to Aspire Gym in Rogers for their morning Open Gym. We had never been to this facility before but heard about it through the MOMS Club. I was excited to take the kids and see what they would do!
Owen took several turns jumping on the trampoline!!! They had 2 great trampoline strips; one ended into a foam pit and the other ended with a huge squishy mat! Owen would wait patiently in line for his turn (we were so proud of him) and then do "open and close" jumps as he traveled down the trampoline and would finish with a "flip" at the end (his attempt at a somersault)!
It is amazing at what kids will attempt to do after watching other kids!! I had been trying to get him to try to do a somersault at home with no luck but when he saw all the other kids doing them he gave it a try!!! By the end of the morning he had done one all by himself!
Owen would touch his feet to the bars and then go down and do a somersault! Of course, the times he actually made it over I didn't have my Flip ready but here you get the idea! He did this every time... it was like his little routine! : )
Addyson was SO happy to be there with the big kids!
