State Meet

Mary's Level 4 State Gymnastics meet was just a few days before we had the baby.
She did phenomenal!  She ended up taking 3rd on Vault and 4th All Around.
Gymnastics has been an amazing sport for her and she has learned and grown so much from it.
She is extremely talented in it, but that comes with a double edged sword.
In order to keep up with the pace she is going, the hours and money are getting out of control.
She is moving up the levels very quickly for her age and it is too hard for us to have our 7 yr old daughter
at the gym for what would now be 16 hours a week.
It was a VERY hard decision, but we have decided to have Mary be done with the sport.
She is sad to leave it, but so excited to now be able to do soccer, dance, swimming, tumbling, piano and all of the other things she hasn't been able to do.
It will be different not to have gymnastics in her life anymore, and even though it is very sad and hard to let her talent in the sport go, I feel that we have made the right decision for Mary and for our growing family. I am so proud of our little athlete.

Here are some pictures from the State Meet. Good job Mary girl!
