State Gymnastics Meet

    Friday, we found ourselves in Huntsville for the state gymnastics meet. I was actually surprised we made it in one piece considering the umm.. eventful morning we had. Addy had a strong practice the night before and we have really been talking up staying focused at the meets. Her attention span is about […]

Busy Weekends

Life has been and will continue to be ridiculously busy for me… I don’t know how I let this happen, honestly. Between gymnastics, work, running.. the time just slips away from me and the next thing I know, I won’t have a free weekend until the end of April. Anywho, this past weekend, we drove […]

5 Things Friday

 Happy Friday, Folks! Hope your week has been fantastic. I’ve got some random thoughts and tidbits to share. 1. Claire hates change. Summertime has brought us a new gymnastics class with new teachers. She’s not a fan. I hoped that if I went out there with her, it would help her be more comfortable. WRONG. […]

Bama vs UCLA Gymnastics

We met Jay at the coliseum(I never spell that word correctly.), and then grabbed some dinner at Newk’s. Where Addy not […]

Gymnastics… It’s a commitment.

Gymnastics.. what can I say about it? It’s been two practices a week totally 4.5 hours every week. It’s been entertaining myself as well as a 3 year old during those practice times. It’s been early morning Saturday meets, in sometimes, far away places. It’s been hundreds upon hundreds of dollars spent. It’s been trying […]

Getting my Olympic Outfit Ready

This post is a total brag fest on my 4 year old.  My little A-A has been invited to join a competition gymnastics squad. Yep. She is the youngest on the team, by the looks of it. Kristy talked to me last week about it a little, and then when we went in on Tuesday, […]
