Here are a few pictures from a gym class that Aaron and Ben took at the YMCA this summer. It was such a great experience. In regards to the importance of kids having both a mother and a father: I have noticed that Ben is MUCH more physically active and experimental with Aaron. He will try things with Daddy that he would never try with Mommy. So after noticing this, and acknowledging that Ben's nature is to sometimes be a lot more cautious than his peers, I suggested that Aaron do the gym class with him as some special Ben/Daddy time.
It worked out SO well. Ben learned all kinds of new things, and in general now is much more physically comfortable with trying new things. Enjoy the pics!
