We are sadly moving in July. I just wanted to thank you for being such a wonderful influence on my daughters. When they talk about gymnastics, they are in heaven! They tell me how strong they are and how hard they work. They talk about balance and skill and always want to show me the new skills they have learned. These are all things that I wanted them to gain from gymnastics and I truly believe that Tumblebears is the best program we could have had them in. Any child that has Miss Jayme as a teacher will be blessed beyond measure. The girls will miss you! – Alysia.- Maria & Olivia’s mom
