M&M Olympics

Brinley's gym has what they call the M&M Olympics this week (we're getting more current now, yay)

It's where they show off all they've learned, like a recital without the glitz, and like other team sports they are awarded a trophy. Every week we walk through the doors and Brin immediately points out her M&M picture "there's mine" - it's the one between the light switch & fire extinguisher.

Brin with Coach Sherry, she loves her!

This is the point where I post my disclaimer:
I was videotaping, taking pictures and holding a crying Bowen, so these are the worst pictures I'll ever post!! But I still feel the need to share them :)

Here she is at the end of her floor exercise...

and on the low bar - she does this flip all alone.

Hand stands!!

Climbing the rock wall.

This is the high bar, she has to have Coach Sherry spot her.

Leading the "train" to the next station :)

Zip line...she can't even reach it by herself (Coach has to put her on it, haha) and a couple of months ago she couldn't hold on by herself!
She was the first to go up on the podium and accept her trophy.
I missed her big "arms held high in a V" moment (well, I have it on video) and tried to get her to recreate it...

But this is what I got - an "I'm sooo over this" pose - LOL

My baby girl showing off her 1st trophy!

Mommy & Daddy are so proud of you, Sweetie!
...and yes, now you can eat your M&M's.
