As some of you may remember, both of my girls have been struggling with bars. My oldest is working hard on her handstand pirouette & giants. She got her pirouette last week (5 times in a row!!) and when i asked if she rang the gong, she said no way! She did not want everyone to stop and watch her, lol.

On Tuesday the girls were going to miss practice b/c we were leaving for a short New Years trip. I asked if they could come in for a couple of hours to do some drills, and they were allowed to go for 2 hrs during the winter camp. Little Monkey has been struggling over her Level 5 jump to high bar for over a year. She had gotten better but was still inconsistent. So...apparently she too had a visit from the bar fairy this week, and this is the video that big DD took on her cell phone on Tues. It's very fuzzy b/c it came from her phone but here goes

How exciting for both of them. I remember LM struggling with her jump to high bar. Glad she finally got it! Just in time for the meet! :D And congrats to your oldest for getting her pirouettes! That is awesome. Loved the blurry cell video. Sweet of her sis to get that.

Sounds like you have a hold on that bar fairy with both DD's getting skills! Fantastic news!

(BTW - that Handstand pirouette is a killer isnt it?)
