Christmas party at the gym

Yesterday, we went to H.'s gym club's Christmas party. It's actually also M.'s gym club, but she was too old to participate. She's 8! I guess the club or la Mairie has a budgetary problem. At "le gymnase", where the event took place (and a different one than the one where they practice)there was another problem: the heating didn't do it. It was freezing in there! Good the kids had an obstacle course to keep warm. Nothing like that for the parents, however...

No pictures of the event, though, for the simple reason I messed up every single one of them. They all came out blurry. So, I can only show you the "static" ones of a gym that obviously has seen better days...
I REALLY need to READ the BOOK!!


Festive, huh!


Lines...


and more lines.


I guess the heating is not the only thing needing a little fix...


Can you spot the tennis balls??


Oh yes, and Santa made his appearance, too. He promised H. a "dinette" (a little kitchen). I think we might be in trouble...


Note: When re-reading this post, I think I sound a little, well, ungrateful. The kids did have fun and the coaches did a wonderful job. Santa even brought chocolates and had a little chat with every single kid. I just wanted to put that straight...

I smiled while reading your description, and loved your sweet "note". I live in Italy, and can fully relate to all of it, and don't worry, we didn't think you ungrateful!Francesca
