If you want to be a good gymnast…

(aka, Ellie’s first competitive meet)

…you’ve gotta stretch out really well…

…and listen to your coach…

…and be patient for your turn…

…and check your equipment…

…and rehearse your routine, and give each performance your best effort…

…on the beam, even if you have a hard time getting started…

…on the floor, even if you have an oopsie or two…

…on the vault…

…and on the bars.

If you do all that, then you feel really good about being in gymnastics.

And if you help your team win the 1st place trophy for your level, you feel really REALLY good!

Ellie and her Level 2 teammates won the 1st place overall trophy, and for her age group, Ellie tied for 1st on vault and floor, took 2nd on the uneven bars, and tied for 5th on the beam. She took second place for the all around competition.  We agreed that that’s pretty exciting for her first meet!
