Before I go, I'd just like to leave you with a few pics of our darling, oldest granddaughter (older by a minute or so than her twin sis). Taylor, age 12, has developed a passion for gymnastics over the last few year. A month ago, during her "free gym" time, she started using the trampoline. The coach was watching her & invited her to join the Trampoline Team. Did you know that "Trampoline" is now an official Olympic event? These pics were taken at a Meet about two weeks after she joined the team. I apologize, most of the pics are a bit fuzzy, because I haven't mastered the art of taking action photos...!
She is so poised!
I know she was nervous, but she totally concealed it.
She is very slender, so she has to really work at getting height.
This entire Meet was set up like a "Mini Olympics," including the "medals" awards. Taylor won two 2nd place medals & tied for 5th. This was just the best pic, because she finally saw me in the crowd & gave me one of her sweet smiles! Sniff, sniff.....Taylor has been in 2 more Meets since this one & just found out this week, that she is going to the Jr. National Olympics in Long Beach in July! We are so excited and proud of her.
As always, thank you so much for stopping by. Please don't forget me while I'm away -- heehee! Have a great weekend y'all!
