Gymboree...it's not just a clothing store!
Don't get me wrong, I LOVE Gymboree clothing, but I think we like 'Play at Gymboree' a 100 times more than their clothes. Miss K has been going to Gymboree since the week before Halloween and she LOVES it. Not that she really understands what is going on, but she loves seeing all the babies. She loves Gymbo the clown, which freaks me out because I am a little weirded out by clowns. But, if she likes him, that is alright with me. She likes me singing to her and I sing those goofy Gymboree songs all day long to her! Wednesday was the last day of the semester for Gymboree, but it was also the last day that our favorite teacher, Miss Katherine, was going to be teaching. She is also a professional singer and had lost her voice several times over the semester, so she made the decision to stop teaching the Gymboree classes. I was crushed. So crushed that I almost considered not signing Miss K for the next semester. I wasn't overly thrilled with the girl who was going to be teaching the classes. Okay, I will be honest, I don't care for her at all. I don't know what it is though. Maybe I was just spoiled because Miss Katherine was such a great teacher and you could chat with her and it felt like you were chatting with your sister or your best friend. Wasn't that way with the other teacher. But, I bit the bullet and signed up for another 16 week semester. If we aren't happy with the way things are going, we'll try something different. But I really think Miss K needs to be in something like Gymboree. She seems to be a very social little girl...she gets that from her mother! She also made a couple of friends in the class. Kellen, a cute little boy, but he moved up to the 6-9 month class early because that boy was crawling right after he turned 6 months. Her other friends are Eisley and Morgan-Blair. Eisley isn't taking the class next semester. She is doing Baby Signs. We think Morgan-Blair is signed up for classes, but we aren't 100% sure. It's funny because as soon as we get to Gymobree and Miss K sees them, she starts laughing and making noises. It's almost like she knows who they are.
I took my camera the last day of class so that I could get a picture of Miss K with her teacher, but I totally forgot. But Brian, who had taken the day off and went to Gymboree with us, did get a couple of pictures. That's Eisley in the "canoe" with Miss K.
