Gymnast in Training


Little Miss Priss is giving gymnastics a whirl this month and is having a ball. It's so funny to watch her. Some skills are natural and graceful, and she doesn't look like a beginner at all. Others... well, let's just put it this way, I've never seen an uglier somersault. In fact, I'm surprised she isn't hurting herself. Nonetheless, whether it is something that comes easy or is requiring some extra attention, she is all about practicing. Unfortunately, so much so, that after working with her teacher on something new, she'd run back over to the mats to attempt the somersault again... and again... and again. Mommy was up out of the bleachers on several occassions redirecting Rachel so that she'd rejoin her class. Thankfully, there are only 2 other little girls in her class, so Miss Courtney is able to give them each a lot of one-on-one attention, and there isn't too much down time.
