Here in Monaco the kids have a half day for Wednesday so most the kids have classes in the sport of their choice. T did swimming with his school for the gym class in the first trimester so, like E, we chose gymnastics as the outside of school activity. I liked the idea of how the sport is good for toning all the muscles, works on balance and flexibility, and while being a team sport it is also an individual sport. Helping him to both work for the team and to compete as himself.
His "competition" was more of an exhibition of his skills and he was rated 1-5 on each exercise. Out of 80 he got a 75. Pretty good I think. And for his hard work he was rewarded a bronze medal and a sugar crepe. :) The French love their sweets!
