naomi competed in her first ever gymnastics meet. this is actually the first ever competitive sporting event for our family. i’m catching on that the waiting, the crowds, the waiting, the lack of seating, the waiting, the wishing we brought binoculars, the waiting and the heart flipping moments when your child puts herself out there are typical.
naomi started gymnastics about a year ago. during competition each gymnast participates in 4 events: vault, bars, floor and balance beam. she has her favorites, she has what she’s best at, and the funny thing is that they don’t always match up. what does that mean…to be “good” at something and not prefer it?
this was the first of several more meets this spring. next time i’ll make sure i charge my camera’s battery so i don’t have to finish the day with the phone camera. grrrrrrr.
