We love gymnastics. Ok, maybe it’s just me. And Alabama gymnastics? Those girls are always talented. They make it easy to cheer for them.
This year we went to the Georgia and Stanford meets. I’m considering going to the SEC Championships or National Championships, both of which are here in town.
I loved the photo cutout at the Stanford meet. Clever.
Ellie is definitely more agile than Sam. She watches Sam do gymnastics every week, and longs to be a part of that. We plan to enroll her for next year when she’s three. In the mean time, we went to a birthday party for Chloe and Jolie (happy birthday girls!) and she had a blast playing on the equipment.
We went to a gymnastics meet with the Grissoms. UA versus LSU. It was a great meet, and despite the seat-swapping and the fact that our seats were double-booked, we had a great time! We won by a point or so.
Samantha and I went to a gymnastics meet back in early February. She has loved her gymnastics class so much (really, just the trampoline) (despite having a new teacher every few weeks) that I thought she’d enjoy the meet. She did. She learned a couple of cheers like “Go Go Go Alabama” and “B-A-M-A Roll Tide Roll.”
About a month later, we went again as a family (and the Grissoms were supposed to go with us, but their attempt was foiled yet again by sickness). Sam was an old pro this time. She asked for popcorn until I conceded. I got the family tub, and discovered that Ellie can put us all under the table with her popcorn eating. (That blur down there is one reason I didn’t get to watch much of the second meet…)
