Although I'm not an avid TV watcher, I'll admit that I've been GLUED to the Olympics. This year especially, I just can't seem to get enough of the competition, athleticism, and patriotism. But what gets me the most, is when they show the parents of the athletes. I can't even imagine the pride they must feel for their children competing in the Olympics. It makes me want to encourage my children to "be all they can be."
My girls have been taking gymnastics for a year, and while they'll both likely be too tall to ever have a serious career, they love it. They both seem to be fairly athletic, and have advanced quite well. They are both already in the classes for the age group above them (meaning Bryn's in the 3 year old class, and G's in the 5s). I think they're moving along quite nicely. I actually took my camera to class last week to snap some pics. Although they're not the best ever, at least I can document their progress.
Here's some of G:
And now a few of Bryn (there aren't as many of her, because she got hurt by the springs in the vault):
