Brooklin started gymnastics last year at the age of 2. This year was the very first year she could compete in the spring showcase like her big sister does. I’ve been watching her during practice every week for the past year and am so proud of where she is now. Not only does she have the basics down but she’s pretty great cartwheels and donkey kicks. Being the middle child I can easily see how her big sister rubs off on her and they are always practicing their gymnastics.
For an hour we sat there and watched Brooklin show off all the skills she’s learned. It didn’t surprise me one bit when warm ups came along and she wanted no part in it. Yes, the only child out on the floor in front of all those people who sat there proclaiming that she wanted to get to the fun already. With a little help from her teacher she was back on cue, but to be honest it wouldn’t have been a well rounded day without it.
