Flippin' and tuckin'....

Saturday was Jenna's gymnastics "meet" at Flip Tuck Gymnastics Center. She has been taking gymnastics there since last June and absolutely loves it. The girls did their routine on each event - bars, beam, floor, and vault - and got ribbons based on their performance on each. Jenna got blue ribbons (highest achievement) on bars, beam, and floor and got a red (higher achievement) on vault. She went through her vault routine too quickly and forgot to "salute" at the end of her vault. . At the end of the "meet", each girl got to go up on the podium and receive their participation medal.


If you've been around Jenna lately, you know how much she loves tumbling. She can't walk anywhere without throwing in a cartwheel or two. She is constantly tumbling on her mat in the family room. She spends most of her recess time doing tumbling with some of her friends. She is going to continue tumbling through the summer and even gets to move up to the "intermediate" class. We're so proud of our little tumblina!
