Hello! I am a longtime lurker and a recent member who just started posting. My daughter is 7 (almost 8) and a L3 gymnast who will have her first meet of the season on Feb. 1st. She is very excited! I stumbled onto this site by accident and it has been a wealth of information for me ever since. This sport is unlike any other I have gone through with my kiddos. From such a young age the kids ae so focused and dedicated. I watch the conditioning program at dd's gym and think an NFL player might struggle to get through it! I love watching my daughters face when she nails a skill she has been working on for weeks and the feeling of accomplishment she gets from a coach who gives her a high five. I look forward to many more postings and even more reading from all of you!
