Gymnastics

Our Anne Marie has been in gymnastics for years. She is good at it, and has won a few medals. Now she is in the state championships every year!

She has her own floor show, with music she picked out.



Some of the things she does scare me! They look dangerous, but she is always in complete control. This weekend, she medaled again.

The girls were biting their medals  to see if they were solid!

I love to see how close these girls are, how they support each other and cheer each other on.

The alphabet in gymnastics. Each letter is a girl in a different position.

Most of these pictures were taken by Anne Marie's mom.

I admire these kids, they are so flexible. All you would hear if I tried those moves, would be snap, crackle, pop and it wouldn’t be coming from the cereal bowl either. LOL

Congratulations to Anne Marie. I liked to do gymnastics way back when I was her age. I wasn't very good at it but I liked trying. I just wish I could be that flexible again...lol

looking at how beautiful and talented she is makes my heart sing with joy. she is so pretty and talented and so grown up. I hardly recognize the sweet baby I met when first we met so many years ago... I love the black and white shot of the biting of the metals.

Congratulations to Anne Marie, great job! How lovely to have a team who supports each other 100 percent. We had a nephew who took gymnastics for years and I was always amazed what they could do. Always impressive and great photos and action shots too Ginnie. That third one down, wow!
