Rugbytots increases attention span should be the headline here! We had lesson four of Rugbytots this weekend ~ and what a session it was! Jensen Indiana completely shocked us with a massive increase in ability and attention span. We were smiling all over our faces and cheering for him for the whole session!
This week there was an assault course for the tots to complete with their ball. Jensen was very keen to get started and ran with Dadda whilst Mamma ambled along with her camera.
The aim was to score a try (done, see above) and then crawl through a tunnel. Our little adventurer did it wholeheartedly and with some gusto! Complete commitment.
Through the other side, turn around and go back!
Jensen had his eyes on the ball the ENTIRE time. It was just amazing to watch. Not even two years old and he just has it. Watch the launch for the ball. Hannah (coach) was so shocked (see face in photo).
Jensen THREW himself onto the ball. My heart virtually exploded. What more can a rugby-loving Mamma hope for in her son?
Ball scooped up, off he went!
Time to score a try again!
…then we were off, back to the start. I love that he runs with his tongue out occasionally. He’s adorable. Plus, look at the fingers. Spread out. No one is taking that ball off him. Three toddlers have tried so far, bigger than him. He holds on tight and gives them a look.
Heading down the course, we were cheering like crazy people! Over the hurdle (you hurdle better than your Mamma, Jensen!) and back to the start!
Cuddles and cheers and tickles from Dadda 🙂
After the relay it was time for the kicking and righting of the cones. Jensen has improved SO much and knew exactly what to do. He was kicking, then righting, whereas others bigger than him (okay, they are all bigger and older than him) were randomly kicking and moving on or just running around. Our adventurer had purpose.
See him right the cones? He knows just where to put his feet now. No problems.
Then when it was time to tidy the cones away, someone RAN for five metres with the cone on his head, without holding it. Of course, I never got that on camera as I was cheering and clapping like a monkey.
At the end of the session it was sticker time again…. See how little he is compared to the other boys? He sits and waits so patiently and listens so intently.
Jensen is always delighted to get a sticker (this is one of the ways I can say he takes after me) and is so proud of himself. We are there, smiling like Cheshire cats and eager to hear that he has a “ticker”.
|This is what pride at 23 months looks like 🙂|
So not only are WE proud of you (as always) but YOU are proud of YOU. And as your Mamma and Dadda, that’s all that we ever wish for you in your endeavours, whatever you may do. And it’s the best feeling in the world for us see you so happy, so full of pride. Well done, Jensen Indiana. You’re truly amazing.
