Gymnastics Performance - Cupcake

Guess what we did Saturday?

Yep! More gymnastics. This time it was Cupcake's big day. She popped out of bed Saturday morning and asked, "Daddy, are you going to see my gymnasta-kicks today?"

Daddy said, "Yes, but your show is after lunch."

Every five minutes for the next 5 hours, we heard, "Is it lunch time yet?"

Finally, 1:30 rolled around and it was time to go to the show.

While Sugar's performance was just the 10 girls in her class, Cupcake's performance was several combined classes with about 30 little girls. The place was a zoo. They didn't have nearly enough seating for all the families. At first, it was loud and chaotic...and pretty intimidating, but then Cupcake realized she was having fun. Then the smiles started and the natural performer showed up.

So without further adieu, I present to you pictures of Cupcake's big performance.

We are very proud of how well she is doing. We were impressed that she performed as well as she did. She's only been working at this level for about a month.

Then our thoughts went back to a year ago. When she came home, Cupcake could not jump with both feet at the same time.

Not only that, but she was able to focus on the task at hand, even with all the people, noise and distractions around her. You have no idea how huge that was for me to see.

Wow! She's come a long ways!

Blessings to you,
