The girls have been going to gymnastics for a while now and this weekend was the big performance to show off all the new skills they have learned. They decided to add a little flair to the event by arriving in leotards and, (hey why not), capes.
Naturally when a girl is channeling her gymnastic super powers she dons a cape.

But once we got inside Macy's nerves got the best of her. Dad made a move to go rescue her (he's such a softy) but I stopped him and we decided to give her a chance to work through it on her own.
And she did!
She was still timid and held her teacher's hand between each event but my brave girl fought through her fear and did a great job!! I was so proud of her and with each event I could see her self confidence building.
Gymnastics though is Nina's passion and our little power house rocked it. She performed on all the equipment and was (as usual) fearless.
Of course with gymnastics there are are multiple events going on at the same time. And of course we had two little athletes participating in the group of 75 kids.
So if you do the math...
Of course they they would have to perform at the same time!
In the middle of Nina's floor routine Macy mounted the bars.
In the end we had two trophy raising champions take the top spot on the podium.

And in case you wondered about those capes...
|They wanted to wear them and as a mom who knows all too well how fast the cape wearing days pass, of course I said yes.|
