If gymnastics were easy, it would be called football
Hannah had her first in house gymnastics meet today in preparation for their first real meet in a couple of weeks. She has been doing gymnastics on and off for a few years now. In August, she got serious about it though and joined a team. She practices 2 nights a week for 2 1/2 hours each! Her coach wants her coming a 3rd day but I just can't bear to have her gone another night. She started at a Level 4, which is pretty good to begin with. There are gymnasts who have been there awhile and are at a level 5. Hannah is only 1 skill away from moving up. We got to watch a level 10 gymnast compete today and it was so amazing. I can totally see Hannah there someday. She has a lot of natural ability and she is built just like a little gymnast. Have you seen her guns? Ask her sometime and maybe she'll pull them out. At home, Hannah is never at a standstill. She is either on her head, hands, in the air, or on the trampoline practicing double and triple backflips. She has even turned our couch into her own personal vault. She is begging her dad to make her some bars and a beam for Christmas. I have posted a video of her floor routine today, which she told me she got an 8.9 score for. There were real judges there and everything. I was so proud of the way Hannah did today. She didn't even act a bit nervous. Way to go Hannah!!!!
I am a mom of 5 trying to juggle the everyday demands of life, children, husband, business, and laundry. Creating something everyday feeds my soul. I have decided to tackle my goal of learning photography on my own, by taking pictures every single day of the things I perceive as interesting, unique, crazy, funny, sad, or just plain mundane. I am hoping by doing this, I will be able to see the lessons I learn, the mistakes I make, and the progress I achieve throughout the year with my photographs. As my reader, I hope you will be able to give me pointers, constructive criticism, and some good ol' cheerleading along the way. Here we go!!
