Anna June has been exposed to a variety of extracurricular activities at her young age, although none for very long. At McElwain, she experienced Soccer Shots, a soccer fundamentals program; Zumba-tomic, a children's Zumba program; and a basketball "camp" with a dinosaur theme from Teams of Tomorrow- or TOT. At some point in the camp, they gave her this picture to color and I stashed it in the unfinished bin, and recently, AJ colored her dinosaur.
Since AJ's been at Avondale, she's had Spanish lessons, although they're not being offered this semester. In after school care, they've offered tennis (which is over), a storyteller with arts and crafts every other week (ongoing), and now dance lessons from the Alabama Ballet are every Thursday.
I asked AJ if she could take any kind of lessons, what would they be. She said "gymnastics" as quick as a wink. It is a good thing, because now we're signing her up for visits on the TumbleBus, starting Monday. She's very excited to go inside, since she saw a YouTube video of the ingenious contraption. It's not Olympic training, but it is a start.
