Molly, a trampoline, and some donkey kicks

Molly moved up to the Super Mites gymnastics class at Northwest Aerials last week.  This is a little more dynamic class, offering a little more challenge and instruction.  Although getting her some exercise in the wet winter months our only goal for these classes, I noticed she was clearly not challenged and appeared a bit bored at a class two weeks ago.  The instructor came to us at the end of the class and suggested that we move her up for her ability to follow direction more than her physical skills.
