Meet Season Ends!

For physical fitness, our girls all participate in gymnastics at the local kids gym.  Rose does a recreational program for girls who love tumbling, Daisy is in a competitive USGA gymnastics club level 3 developmental team program and Magnolia is busy as a little bee in her preschool programs for tumbling and dance (at least until she turns 4 and then who knows?)

So this was our first year competing and we participated in gymnastic meets in Wilmington, Indianapolis, Cincinnati and Louisville.  It was a growth and learning experience for all of us (mom and dad included :).    She may not have won a place in every meet, but she learned many new skills, a confidence to stand and perform in front of a crowd on her own and a perserverence to keep working even after experiencing disappointment.  She also was fortunate to have coaches who support these little gymnasts as whole persons and growing girls, teaching them with love, respect, compassion, empathy and dare I say genuine enthusiasm.  So cheers to Daisy for completing her first competitive season and many more happy returns!

Here are some of our favorite photos from the season!
