A change of plans

We were going to Kansas this week but we changed to Lake Michigan. I will miss going to Kansas but I know that we will have fun in Lake Michigan and it will be like a beach but better because it will be clean water not salt water.


Camping in Loudenville Ohio

From Friday Morning to Sunday Morning with my Grandparents in Loudenville Ohio. We saw a lot of Amish and had a lot of homemade food that was made by the Amish. My grandma and I sell and make jewelry we had it out there with a for sale sign but no one came over to look. It was my first time selling jewelry and hopefully we will sell some next time. I had a lot of fun and luckily my grandparents own a camper that is like a mini house so we didn't have to sleep and spend the day in a tent.

3 more new skills

Last Friday at gymnastics I did something new that added on to my squat on jump to the high bar long hang pullover. It was really scary because it was up pretty high. After I did the long hang pullover I did a back hip circle which you go around the bar backwards and stop when you get back to the top undershoot (you just go down and hang) then swung twice turned to the side touched the bar and jumped down!!!!! It was really scary and really fun. : ) Another thing that I did was a mount on the beam. It is hard to explain but I will hopefully video everything that I can do and hopefully show you soon! : ) The last thing that I did was a front tuck off of the end of the beam with a spot from my coach. Hopefully I can do it by myself soon!!! : ) I did a lot more things at gymnastics before I started this blog. So if you have any questions about what I can do just post it on a comment and I will answer your question. I will post things that I did before slowly as I tell you things that go on in my world. : )

Meet my family

Here is my puppy, Rudy, and me. He is 3 years old and is so cute! As you can see yes I have braces and every time I have changed the colors except once they have had pink on them.
Here is my mom and dad. They are the best parents that I could have. My mom is a pharmacist and my dad is a nurse.

Here is my brother. He is a lacrosse goalie, football player, and basketball player. He is a sports lover!


A couple new skills

Last Friday at gymnastics I got three new skills! Two of them I have been working on for a while but one of them a coach just told me to try that night so I did and I did it and it wasn't bad. It was actually good! One of them that I have been working on for a while is a front tuck on the floor! I had to run really hard and jump up hard and high. I was scared at first but after I did it I realized that it was really fun. The next one that took me a while was a squat on, jump to the high bar, long hang pullover. If you don't know what a long hang pullover is this is what you do. First swing on the high bar and get your hips up high. Then on the third swing bring your hips around the bar and pull your upper body up. It sounds pretty simple but it isn't. The thing that I did that night when a coach told me to try it was a front pike off of a spring board, into a cheese pit. A front pike is like a front tuck except you grab your ankles instead of your legs. Also, a cheese pit is not actually cheese. It is foam squares in a pit that goes 6 feet down.
