I am not coordinated.
My daughter is.
She does get hurt a lot.
But she manages to do gymnastics really well.
(And yes, I had to get her an awesome leotard. The other ones can be boring. And plus, tons of other kids would be wearing the same thing. Couldn't have that! So I ordered her a leotard from the Etsy shop SENDesigne.)
Tom was really excited to see his daughter perform at her end of the year show.
I'm serious when I say he looks like this 90% of the time. Bitch Resting Face. My husband has it.
The kids all go to different stations to show what they can do. Natalie is pretty good with the bars. I did gymnastics for a brief (brief) period as a kid and was petrified of the bars.
She didn't fall off the balance beam. I would have.
Whenever I see her do this, I picture Anne of Green Gables going across the roof.
(I have more photos on my Instagram account if interested.)
After the kids did all their tricks, they got a medal:
We'll keep doing gymnastics until she wants to quit.
(Some people gave their kids flowers after the show. Natalie got a pat on the head.)
I wrote a review on an awesome book called The Beautiful American over at Chick Lit Central. You can check it out here. You'll find all sorts of books to read on that site!
