Gymnastics!!!

again, pics from my phone..it was a little bit hard to get any good ones behind the glass but you get the picture!!!(no pun intended,ha)


Well, after many years of begging and pleading, and thanks to grandma Taunnie, Ali finally got her wish to start taking gymnastics!!!! For a long time I didn't want her to start because I know how time consuming it can be if you want to be good at it not to mention the cost if you take it any further than just doing it for fun.

I have always said I would rather Ali be really good at one thing than be doing a bunch of things just ok. We have tried ice skating, soccer, dance, but she didn't love any of them. She does love softball (which she will keep playing).

She actually, has always had a little bit of natural gymnast ability in her and I always could see it but I guess I didn't want to admit it totally. She has so much strength and is getting better with her flexibilty and catches on pretty easily to what she is learning even the first time.

Anyway, she had her first lesson yesterday and of course she loved it!!! She did great and is a little sore today but it looks like we are in for a long gymnastics career!!!
