Once Again.......

The only boy!

Teague started up Tumbling again, he didn't take during the summer, but he really wanted to keep doing it. This however is the first time that he has been the only boy in his class. As you may remember, he is the only boy in his ice skating class as well, which also started up again after a week break.

I was surprised at how well he did considering he hadn't tumbled, except for jumping off of stuff, in three months. He has a new teacher, her name is Miss Tavy. He has had Miss Alicia for so long, I was a little sad to see that he had a new one, but she is really great. I can't figure out how she did it without an assistant, but it was really good. I know that I wouldn't be able to do it, I guess that is why I pay other people to teach my children. I am so proud of Teague, he never once interrupted Miss Tavy and whenever she would ask them to do something, he did it. If he had a question, he would raise his hand and patiently wait for her to call on him. I guess we are doing something right! (or those teachers I pay are doing something right.)

When people ask Teague what his name is, he usually says, "My name is Teague, but it is actually "Good Jumper."" I think that is so fitting for tumbling.

He also has a new teacher for ice skating, her name is Miss Kathy, she didn't have an assistant the first lesson, but she did for the second lesson, I think because there were a couple of little tots that were having a hard time. Teague for some reason thinks that everything with ice skating is a race, so whenever he skates over to the opposite side, he yells (so everyone can hear) "I WON!" On the first day whenever he would get to the opposite side of where I was he would yell (again, so everyone could hear) "MOM, I LOVE YOU!" Okay, it melted my heart, how cute is that?
