if I was completely honest with you...at no point in my young life did I think I would be spending most saturday's in a gymnastic facility watching my children running around doing "gymnastic" things.
and I love it! it is so much fun to see how excited they get about going to practice, I'm just glad I get a chance to watch them, and they get a chance to participate. at no point have we conveyed a message to either of the noodles that it is a right to participate in what is essentially a priveledge of our affluent culture. but the interesting thing is that neither of them regard it as so - nature/nurture?
sidebar...the real reason I bring it up is this. what are they going to be doing in another 5 years? 10 years? to me it doesn't matter...I just know I want to be around to see it.
