Today was The Bears first trial lesson over at The Little Gym. His therapist has suggested that it might be a good thing for him to help him stretch and loosen up his tight muscles a bit and to help with his balance and coordination. Why is it that I never have my video camera when I need it?? The class only had one other little girl in it who was also there for her free trial. When the class first starts, they have "circle time" and sing the opening song. Kayden was way too excited to sit! He ran around and twirled in a clunkish, boy way, pausing now and then to do an impressive body slam on the soft mats! The teacher did her best to get his attention, but to no avail!
Once they started the somersaults on the slanted pad, he was all over it. For the rest of the class, he would run over to the mat in between stations and do LOTS of "front rolls". He did settle down after awhile and did the balance beam and flips on the bar. He would clap for himself after each event and then run over to the window we were sitting by, so we could clap for him too! So Cute!
Afterward, The Bear said that that was the most fun thing to do ever! Of course, we signed him up for 10 more classes. I'm sure there will be more to come on our little tumbler!
On a different note, we had our meeting with CRS today, over at St. Josephs Hospital. Kayden was approved for full coverage of all things pertaining to his problems. They will cover the casting, braces, all tests, all future therapy sessions, and even surgery if we find out we need it! This is a HUGE blessing to us! He will also see a genetic/metobolic specialist within the coming weeks! HOORAY! Maybe we will finally get a solid diagnosis on the problems and get things taken care of!
