Sunday snapshot - the gymnast

Gym Will Diptych 1

5 year old Will has very little fear of most things,
in fact he'll try anything physical.
As a toddler I'd find him walking along the outside of the staircase (holding onto the railing)
on the second story of our landing,
with a huge smile on his face.
I almost had heart failure.

Last Fall he started gymnastics and he's mastered cartwheels, roundoffs and the splits.
He's working on handstands and next will be back flips.
For the Summer he'll be moving up a level with the bigger boys.

Awesome job Will!
We couldn't be more proud of you!

I think guys in gymnastics are so cool! I don't understand why it isn't more popular with them.

We started Chloe in a beginning gymnastics program this year and now she has been invited to train for the team, so her practice has gone from 1hr/1day/week to 2hrs/3days/week. It is intense, but she is really determined. I think she will get that backflip any day now. I would have liked to have started her sooner, but I don't think she was really ready until Fall. Then she broke her arm and had to wait until January to start.

Keep up the good work. I would love to see how Will is progressing. The pictures are wonderful.

He could not be any cuter!! I think he is a gymnast in the making..... I know he just started, but it seems like he is a "pro" already!!

I love all the special moments you captured!! You will have to keep us posted on his progress.

Finally catching up here and the pictures of the kids over the past few weeks are beautiful. I especially love the ones of them by the water. So pretty!!

Have a wonderful week~



PS. The new blog look is fantastic. Great colors!!
