Our little gymnast

By K.J. Cardinal

Tonight we took Anna to her first-ever gymnastics class at The Little Gym in Westboro. After being shy for about two minutes, Anna took off and seemed to be somewhat of a natural.
The highlight of the night was Anna's ability to instantly pull off the "spider walk" (see below). She put her feet on one bar and her hands on the other and then walked sideways.
I've gotta say that it was very rewarding for me to watch her do this stuff. She was one of the older kids there, and I'm probably a little biased, but she seemed to dominate considering it was her first time. And... she was getting after it despite not having a nap today. She's a warrior on the mats. Look for Anna at the 2024 Olympics.
