It's been a challenging year for this little lady. Many minor injuries that have prevented her from working full-force. Yesterday she had a great critique meet. Her beam routine has been changed to add skills that she did not have just a few weeks ago! She is a proud young lady and is eager to get back to the gym and work on corrections/improvements. The season kicks off at the end of January.
I hope and pray that her little body cooperates.
She is officially a level 7 now and we are so proud of her hard work!
She had a lot of fun with her teammates. The meet was a small one at North Valley Gymnastics. The judges were friendly and the other gymnasts too. It was a great experience for these young ladies.
I know this is way late, but I really want to get back into regular memory-keeping here.
In November, besides Phillip's celebration of his birthday, we kept busy with school and sports activities. Not much new here. Our little family of six (Grandma and Grandpa Carr) had a great Thanksgiving together. There was lots of cooking and the kids helped tremendously this time around.
I will find the rest of the pictures tomorrow and post more. Life has been much busier (and richer) than I can keep up with, but I love experiencing all this.
... we celebrated a big boy's birthday. Wait, yes, his birthday is in October. He's a busy boy and this family gets busy watching his basketball games, working on Sundays (the mom), and just plain living life.
The boy insisted on having a "big party", with lots of friends. We obliged, since it's probably the last big one. Who am I kidding? He'll find an excuse for a party next year! He's my social one.
Yes, there are two of them! Big tall boys in sixth grade. Incredible!
There they are again! Lots of basketball and football.
It was a warm Saturday afternoon. The boys swam for about an hour after playing ball.
Some of the cool boys. They have so much energy!
I have to post this one too. I love Phillip's smile!
Pizza. Some of the boys ate five (!) pieces.
Life is good for this boy. And for his lucky family too.
She wanted comfort. He wanted crazy. This is what they came up with.
We went to a Halloween party where we joined three other families on our trick-or-treating.
A cute story about Maya: she wanted a bedtime snack and asked for broccoli with green onion dip when we got home. Phillip asks, "who eats broccoli on Halloween?", as he is catching up on the basketball game on TV and eating his candy.
