Grandma Nelson watches Ethan all by himself on Friday's and decided to sign him up for a class at the Rec Center as well. For his age he fit into the Gym Cats class. He has been excited for it since Grandma told him about it, and even more so since he went with Katelee to her Tumbling Cubs class. We were leaving for Utah on his first day of class so I took the day off so I could be there. Chris took the kids to Grandma and Grandpa Nelson's house in the morning before school and I finished packing and got myself ready. I left the house with plenty of time to get to Henderson and go with Ethan to his class. As I turned out of our complex my tire light came on. I called my brother and asked if he could put some air in my tire at his house, he told me to come on over. When I got there I noticed that I had a HUGE nail in my tire and that was the reason for the low tire! Go figure. I took the day off just so I could see Ethan at his class and we could leave for Utah earlier and here I probably wouldn't make it to see Ethan. My brother, being the overly kind brother he is, offered to let me take his truck to Henderson and he would take my car to the tire store and have it fixed. With a little hesitation I finally took him up on his offer, just so excited to go to class with Ethan. I got to Nelson's house in time and we headed over to the Rec Center for Ethan's class. When we walked in Grandma got Ethan's shoes and socks off and then the teacher made the following announcement, "OK parents you will have to wait out in the hallway." My heart dropped. I took the entire day off of work to be here for this, my brother is doing my dirty work so I could be here, and for what to wait in the hallway?? My little mother heart broke, especially when the best picture of Ethan in tumbling was this one..... This boy is so funny sometimes. He was happy until he realized we weren't going to be in the room with him. I tried to bribe him with just about everything I could think of. Finally Grandma came in and said she was just going to stay with him so I left. A few minutes later out came Grandma. She had also been kicked out... It ended up being a good thing, Ethan loved his tumbling class and from the little peep hole they had he participated just fine! When he came out I asked him if he wanted to come back next week and he said, "yeah, if my teacher will let me!" He went again last week and loved it. He even learned how to do the Spider Wall Climb and showed it to us later that night! Later in the car on the way to Utah Ethan said, "when do I get my Slurpee for going to tumbling class so well?!" I just had to chuckle, the boy has a memory, even if it is a little off!
