2020 Olympics, here she comes!

This past Saturday, Chloe had a her first gymnastics meet.  She was a little nervous.  I was nervous for her.  None of my kids have ever competed in anything, so this was a first for me and Mike, as well.
She did awesome!  Seriously, amazing!
I'm usually the one that takes her to her practice, so I always watch how she interacts with the other girls in her class and with her coach.  When she first started taking gymnastics, she would kind of rush through things.  Just in the few months that she's been there, I can tell such a huge difference in how she pays attention and now she always tries her very hardest.  Just the effort that she puts into it now is so much better.
She had a vault routine, an uneven bar routine, a balance beam routine, and a floor routine.
She got great scores and placed 4th in all-around!
I was so proud of how focused she stayed the entire time.  Mike and I just kept saying to each other, "I can't believe how focused she is!"
We didn't doubt that she would do a great job, but just how well she actually did went above and beyond what we were expecting.
This is something that she loves to do and I'm so excited for her to learn more and to see how far she goes with it.
And of course, the pictures. :)
