Creole Classic – Level 1

Kennedy competed in her fourth gymnastics meet over the weekend. She started out on vault, where she had a little fall (out of her handstand). She scored a 9.150 and placed 5th overall on this event.

Next up was Bars where she scored a 9.500! I thought she would be nervous from her vault, but she didn’t let it rattle her next event!  She placed first overall on Bars.

Balance Beam was the next event – I think I hold my breath at every meet for this rotation. She scored her highest score on beam so far…a 9.550, placing first overall on Beam.

Lastly, she competed on floor where she scored a 9.125. She placed third overall on this event.

Out of 11 girls in her group, she placed second All Around! We are so proud of Kennedy on her first year of competing – she is surely rocking it out at every meet.

Nana surprised the girls with long stemmed roses…Jules received one too since she is a good cheerleader for her sister. She comes to every meet and is so well behaved (wish we could say the same for brother ;)

To Everyone Else, It’s Just Tuesday…

We had a fun filled Mardi Gras with our family and friends! We went to our cousin’s house for some BBQ and parading. The kids absolutely loved running around and playing with their friends and cousins.

Easton just wanted to play ball…of course. I don’t care where we are, that boy will find someone to play ball.

There’s something about sitting under a tree, enjoying the company, and waiting for a Mardi Gras parade to pass. It just doesn’t get better!

When it was time for the parade to pass, the kids kept their hands up the entire time. They came home with way too many beads and stuffed animals. Easton caught 4 balls (like we need more), and they played “parade” when we got home.

2018 Gymnastics Exhibition

Jules could not contain her excitement – she was finally able to show off all her gymnastics skills she’s been learning. Kennedy was also able to perform her team routines. We decided to bring Easton (for once) to watch their performances. We quickly realized why we don’t bring him to meets :) He was not happy until he was on the floor himself!

Jules was so excited to show off her beam routine she has been working on. I love watching her grow into the little gymnast she is becoming. Jules is super strong!
