Amanda's Auntie Laryssa has been faithfully taking her to gymnastics class each week, so I was happy for the excuse to go observe what she's been up to. She's in a "shadow" class, so Laryssa is by her side for the duration, in addition to the instructor. She's very strong for her age (so I'm told) and seems to do really well. For now, its helpful to have Laryssa doing the class with her so Amanda's attention can be redirected when she's being distracted by some
brats behaviorly challenged children in her class.
Her teacher, Miss Julie is very sweet and has all good things to say about Amanda

Taking a quick peek to be sure we are watching.
Yes, we are!
Amanda was so incredibly proud to have us there, particularly her big sister, watching her do something that was just hers. You did great, sweet girl! We love you!
...It seems it was good for me to go through all those troubles. Throughout them all you held tight to my lifeline. You never let me tumble over the edge into nothing....
