    For Parents Self Fundraiser?

    Hi, all! Hope everyone's gymmies are having a fun & safe season. I haven't been around, as much, lately. It's been a difficult year. My husband is ill so I've had to work more out of the home.

    How is it Possible to Skip L6 Entirely?

    Pixie had an exhibition that the L5-10 girls did this past Saturday. And having not been to the gym in a loOong time, I learned quite a bit from some of the parents. One of the things I found out is that the girls that were competing L5 last season are skipping L6 without having to attain the...

    For Parents ~Here is Proof of How Much Your Gymmies Grow~

    Something Emma's mom said to me in another thread really got me thinking. I'm so caught up in the "today" and I need to stop and appreciate just how hard Pixie works in gym. It's hard to pick up the little nuances when you see them train day in and day out. For a reality check post a video...

    For Parents Just Curious, Who Chooses the Music?

    Something a mother at Pixie's gym said to me yesterday got me thinking... it's not terribly important, I'm just curious. One of the mother's that I've gotten to know during the practices was talking to me about her daughter moving up. She was in L5 the past two season and she told me that if...

    For Parents Anyone else still have sectionals & state?

    Besides Pixie?? Starting to feel left out here, lol! Actually, what I'm feeling is butterflies! Sectionals is Saturday morning. While she is super amped I'm starting to worry. Mainly because her coaches have been "adjusting" her handstands so that she holds them longer and now they are ALL...

    Bless her little heart. She had a rough go of it but I thought she was fabulous! She always impresses me. I know I'm mom but I'm just so in love with this little girl! We had to get up really early to get there which probably didn't help the matter. We had to drive to one town to drop my boys...
