Well we have officially been in our new home for 1 week now. We are so thankful that we were able stay at my in law's home for as long as we have, but we needed to get settled before school starts for the kids next week. We still do not have a kitchen but we do have cabinets waiting to be installed! Hopefully that can happen this week! In the meantime, we have been living off of a toaster oven. Not the healthiest food options but we are surviving! It also makes for one great diet plan since I'm too exhausted on my late work nights to come home and wait for the toaster oven to heat up so I just go to bed. Ha
The kids were so excited to sleep in their new rooms!
On another note, Bryleigh went to a one day gymnastics camp last week. She had so much fun and learned so much from the big girls! She was so excited to show us how she improved her back walkover that day! She is doing so well at gymnastics and she is so proud of her own progress. She decided that she wants to stick with gymnastics this year and not continue with dance. And after seeing her skill level this past summer, I think gymnastics is officially her area of talent! Bryleigh finished up her last gymnastics class of the summer a few weeks back. After talking with her coach, we had decided we would discuss Bryleigh's ability to be on the competition team this fall with the head coach. After camp, I talked with the coach and program director and they both said that Bryleigh has a lot of talent and "ability" wise, she would most definitely qualify for the team. However, her age and attention level are working against her. Most kids on the team start at about 8-9 years old so being a 5 year old on the team would be difficult. We decided that she will remain in the pre team class for this next year and then join team next summer. This will allow her to work on her listening skills a bit more. We want her to have fun and succeed but we don't want start her at such a young age that she becomes tired of it. This also works out well for us since I would have missed all of her meets due to school. Next year I will be finished with school and ready to be a gymnastics mom!
This girl is also doing back handsprings on the trampoline at home. We definitely have to watch her carefully because she as no fear!
