Samantha (10 years old) competes for a local gymnastics team. She trains nine hours a week at the gym. She works hard and has the skills to prove it. All this athletic ability is fantastic for her and she loves to practice. I am so thankful to the gym that allows her to let her talent shine. I am also truly thankful that they allow me to trade her coaching fees, some of them, anyway, for my cleaning services. I vacuum and clean the gym every week. Big place, lots of vacuuming, but, a great opportunity for Samantha. Another perk is that while I am cleaning, the kids get to play there. SO FUN! Bouncey floors, two huge trampolines, balance beams, mats, mats, mats and a big foam pit! During our snow days this week, all the kids, plus three lucky friends got to go with me to the gym. Some photos of the fun:
There was plenty more fun, but, I only took a break to take pictures while the big kids entertained the little kids with the chute.
