First day of gymnastics

Today we did a free trial at a gymnastics class. We had grand plans of getting some cute pictures, but haha as you can see Dane had sweat pouring off of him, my hair was falling out of my pony tail. It is a lot of work not just for the kids, but for the adults too! So here are a couple of pictures before we left the house, and some after class. Don't mind the poor quality, or not so great pictures of the adults!!


Drake and Kera had fun for the most part. I had Kera today, Daddy had Drake. They seperated us into two different groups. I kind of don't like that, but I understand that they want the kids to be some what independent. Besides it's going to happen eventually- like when they get to school. Kera and I started off in a station where we did the slide, valt, flips, and trampoline. Kera really loved that station! She loved the slide, flips, and trampoline! Daddy and Drake started in a station with flips, and hand stands. Drake liked doing flips. We then changed stations and Drake and Daddy got to do our first station and Kera and I got to do their first station. Kera liked that station too! Drake was not that fond of the trampoline but he did like the slide and the vault/flips. After those two stations Kera and I went to bars/rings. Drake and Daddy went to balance beams. Kera didn't really like the bars yet. She did like the rings on like the 3rd time around when the Coach swayed her back and forth. Drake did not like the blance beams. We switched stations after a little while, and Drake loved the bars. Kera did not like the balance beams. She really just wanted to jump on them! Kera and I met this other little girl and her mom that was in our group. Her name is Nicole and she is younger than Drake and Kera but she will be turning 2 at the end of May. Nicole was very good at bars :) and in station 2, she shared with Kera. She gave Kera a ball and said "Here isha ball". Towards the end Drake and Kera were getting a little fussy. Kera wanted to see Daddy and Drake just wanted to run around and do whatever he wanted. So I'm not sure if they love it, but we are going to sign up anyways. I think it will be good for all of us to have a class type setting. Not only for structure, but to also meet other kids/parents.

About Me

My name is Melissa Schilling. I am married to my wonderful husband Dane who I have been with for 10 years. We have toddler twin babies Drake and Kera. I started this blog in hopes to one day be a photographer. As for right now my husband and I are using photography as a hobby we can do together. We are starting the 365 day project August 1, 2009. I can't wait to start to learn more and more about my camera. I look forward to any feedback. I will be mostly focusing on people subjects, because that is what I am interested in. However there may be a few other types of photography in the mix.

Thanks for looking at my photo blog, please follow me if you are interested in seeing all of my work, and where this takes me in the future.
