Diva takes First Place

We are back from yet another meet. Diva took first place in the level 4, 10 year old division. She fulfilled a dream she's been dreaming for a year now - she got to stand on the podium (at the top, no less).

The team took 2nd overall and got to bring home a trophy - It was a special day for these girls :0)

And now a special day for Diva's mom and dad - we have a two week break from gymnastics meets!

Hooray for Diva! Well done!!

And what great parents she has for all the effort you guys put in! Although I have only the one child, from my reading etc it is evident that the brothers/sisters can sometimes get over looked, but it's clear that you are careful not to let that happen :0)

Enjoy the "break" :0)

YAY for all! :) As a former athlete I know how she must have felt, but I imagine it's a relief for you that it's over for a bit!! Thanks for the update!

Hi Rainbowmummy, we try hard to make sure Diva gets equal time. I think she's getting more that her fair share during meet season - Frog feels like he has moved to Grandma's house!

Hi Julie, she is sooo excited. She is still shooting for that elusive 36 all around score.

Hi Maddy, Hi CC!

Diva is still on cloud 9 - she's looking for a cool way to start displaying her awards :0) She's off at practice again tonight - already wanting to work on skills for the next level. Looks like we will be a gymnastics family for some time.
