Five months after it all began Emma's big day arrived. Five months ago she was asked to join the Level II girls team. Really, her journey began in January 2008 at the precious age of 4. One year ago, she wanted to quit and I encouraged her to stick with it for a few weeks more. She did.
She has watched Jonah progress faster than she has. She has been disappointed. She has been encouraged by friends and family. Overall, she has been determined while having fun at the same time.
Emma had her first gymnastics competition on August 27th.
I thought she was beautiful!
I thought she was brave!
I thought she performed well!
I was one proud momma!
