Whoot Whoot About DGD

phonegirlApril 14, 2014

Forgot to tell all of you what happened last week w/DGD.
She had participated in a talent show doing her gymnastics.
Her mother had ask if she should postpone her schooling
in case she was picked to move on. I said "with 337 participants
what would be the odds of her being picked." She's only in
second grade. Go ahead and head to school.

Well she was one of the of top 12 chosen. She had another
show with the public and school last Thursday.
It was so fun to watch and hear all the cheering as she
performed cart wheels, front and back flips, round offs,
front and back rolls and splits.

I felt so bad that her parents couldn't be there to watch
the performance again. She is pretty shy so hopefully
this will help her in the future.

Not sure if I told you but last year she was chosen to
travel to classes for the beginning training for the Olympics.
DD couldn't figure out how to make
that happen w/o moving. We decided if it was suppose
to happen, it will come up again in her future.

Thanks for sharing this Special moment with me. Punk

Punk ...how exciting! It must have been such a thrill for you
to watch her and a proud moment too.
Your right this should help her shyness.
Too bad you couldn't take a video...although some schools don't want any
Videos while kids are performing.
Congratulations to her....

Thanks Marlene. I'm so excited to take her to the Easter
egg hunt in the park on Sat. We are going to take her
shopping for a new pair of roller blades for Easter. I'm
thinking we will also buy some knee and elbow pads so
she can continue to do her gymnastics w/o issues!LOL

She was going to spend a couple of nights with us this
week but she is just so attached to her DM. I'm thinking
we'll get her Friday night so we can go shopping after
the egg hunt on Sat.

Congratulations! And with her being so young and already winning competitions, I will bet she will be an Olympic star some day! No kidding on that!

Blizlady, thank you so much for your comments. I hope
your right! Her and one of her friends spent the day with
us today. They are so amazing and also fun to watch.
Makes me hurt seeing all the effort they put into it!LOL I
can say if I was a few years younger I would so be trying
it all with them.

Thanks again, Punk
