I forgot to share this earlier...but Hadleigh completed her first year of gymnastics in May, and they all celebrated with a meet-style performance, though it was not competitive.
Here she is, warming up for the uneven bars....which was her favorite apparatus. (Mine too, once upon a time!)
I love how comfortable she was, despite the really large crowd gathered. She talked with her instructors easily before and after each performance...it was so fun to see her at ease. She even stopped in the middle of her vault to have a conversation with her coach about which jump she should do. (Talk about interrupting the flow of the vault...but really cute, nonetheless!)
Hmmm. I guess she realized it's not real gold, huh? ;) She was so excited about that medal!
This might be my favorite picture of the day. Love that high five captured in motion! Both Nathanael and Madeleine were so excited and encouraging. Makes my heart happy.
