Once I did find this out I decided to register the girls in gymnastics as I knew they would love this, especially Marietta who had be practicing her splits and cartwheels for months beforehand (I never mentioned that I was considering putting her in gymnastics). Of course the city programs are nothing fancy or advanced, but enough for the girls to learn something and have some fun. After our move this did mean a bit of extra driving, but it was usually combined with appointments and/or groceries to make the trip worthwhile.
They had fun on the balance beam.And were quite impressed with how high they were actually jumping when the did their dismount.
We will miss these extra luxury benefits that we enjoyed, but we will especially miss the cheap (75% off) swimming lessons we could get while living in the city. Since qualification goes by tax years we still have a few months to benefit from these programs and so the kids are currently taking swimming lessons (the same night as piano lessons - to make the trip in worthwhile).
