The Last Day of Gymnastics, Recording Life with our Xyboard #VZWSS

This year I decided to sign up both of my kids for gymnastics.  Partly because I just wanted them to be involved in something and at their age it is the only thing they can sign up for, and partly because they both expressed interest in doing it (since their friends at school/daycare were doing it).  We were all very thrilled to go to the once a week (each) gymnastics sessions, and the kids had a blast.

I have to admit though, by the end I was getting to the point where the running around was starting to weigh on me and I was gladly anticipating the end of going to gymnastics two nights a week.  When the time came it was a relief, yet sad at the same time.  The kids wouldn’t have some type of activity to look forward to each week, and I am terrible at planning things for them to do, so now I have to come up with something to do with them this summer so they don’t get bored each week.

I was fortunate enough to be able to capture some of my son’s gymnastic adventures on his last day (I wasn’t there on my daughter’s last day unfortunately, however, I did sneak a video of her in as well).  I used my Xyboard that I have been testing out for Verizon Wireless to capture the video.  It does a great job of capturing high quality videos on the go.  Plus I was easily able to upload them directly to Youtube, so no need to even plug it in, just simply hit share and I was ready to go!

Take a look here at some of the videos of our last day at gymnastics (they are all short, I promise):

    They look like they had a great time with gymnastics! Love knowing that the Xyboard easily uploads straight to Youtube, as well - A1 would love that, since she records herself and her friends while they're having jam sessions. Reply
