naomi had her second ever gymnastics meet. eliza, nana and i went to watch while jerry and micah tended to martha’s needs. we took movies of her competing for them to see which means i don’t have photos of that part!
naomi competed alongside her teammates from the flip flop shop, but is scored alongside those in her age group from all teams.
her scores were her personal best so far.
and while she placed everywhere from 1st-4th in separate events (beam, bars, vault and floor), naomi got first place over all!
what a thrill for her!

true naomi story: one very warm day this week we were waiting in the middle school parking lot for her. our van has a neat feature that lets you flip the back seat down so you can sit in it with the hatch up and have your legs hang out the back. so, micah, eliza and i sat there and watched the buses pull in, kids start walking home, etc. after not too long, i see naomi waiting on the sidewalk (at which point she usually walks straight to the car). we start rearranging the seat, gathering water bottles, putting shoes back on, etc. i wonder what is taking her so long when i notice a text from her. keep in mind that she is only about 3 car spaces away from us. the text says: “can u plz get back in the car?!?!?” oh, i wanted to crank up some music and dance, but i got everyone in the car, shut the doors, and she came over. : )
