It was one of those hard events though where I just couldn't stand it because my kids are getting so big. My mother couldn't get past how tall Rachel was and how Harm can now do a really great handstand. The events were beautiful and so see for yourself! It was total cuteness!
Rachel will still be doing ballet with our most wonderful Miss Jackie on Saturdays. I tried to get her into tap and jazz but she just wasn't having it so here she is :)
Harm has been moved up again in gym. The recital was his last day in Flipping Frogs and advanced Grasshoppers. I am so proud of him but a little worried. He went from the tallest to now the smallest and they are working him hard. I know he has the potential to do great though and while we don't know if he will start competing next year or until Rachel is old enough to compete with him, we sure are so proud of this born leader.
As I stated before Rachel is not interested in tap or jazz so we made the hard choice to let her do what she wants. So in exciting news Rachel has joined the pre-competition level team at Gym Magic and is now a magical mini. I don't get past how incredibly amazing and miraculous that a girl with Cerebral Palsy is on a balance beam and is doing gym tricks with kids a couple years older than her. It has taught me the valuable lesson that only labels will limit children.
Last but not least is our gold medal cutie Cally!!!! It was bittersweet for him as well because he has moved from the girls gym to the boys beginner Grasshopper class. He is doing great with the boys and still finds plenty of time to give hugs to all of his beautiful girl instructors. I just beam seeing how happy he is and at gym he is no exception!
