I just thought I would do a better job of blogging! I guess I had no idea how busy I was about to become after my last post.
Naomi has had a great competitive gymnastics season. She placed at every meet in at least one event and I believe she placed in the All Arounds each time as well. She competed at State in March and placed on every event except for Vault-she was close to placing though! She took FIRST on Beam at State!! She also took 2nd All Around at State and qualified for Regionals in Galveston, Tx. We are so proud and can't wait to see her growth over the coming years.
I have had some job changes this winter. I started at Wichita Gymnastics doing classes and the Silver team and then in December/January I started training to coach the Gold and up teams. So, I have been working every day of the week at the gym. Plus, doing meets for both sets of teams. It has been exhausting but I truly love it. That scheduled changed a little when soccer started...it got busier!
Soccer started in February with Conditioning in the afternoons. So, I would go to work right after Conditioning or come from work straight to Conditioning. It was crazy but it worked. Then we started our season and the Training times had to change. So, then I would go to work on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday after two hours of soccer training and once games started it changed again! With games going I wasn't able to work as much but would try to go to work after games. I am beat. We only have three more weeks of soccer and I am sad and glad. lol For work, I have been able to cut back on my hours and I am not coaching the Silver girls anymore-I am sad because I love them but I am glad to have some of my time back. For now, anyway!
On the home front, life is moving along. Sarah went to Thailand for 10 days with our church and loved every minute of it. Beth got a new job at Cocoa Dolce and adores it. Hannah is driving everywhere and has three jobs, she is a starter for our High School team. Naomi is in the off season for gymnastics but is a starter for Jr. High soccer and a part-time starter on our High School team. Phoenix is still loving public school and thriving. Steven is still amazing and supportive and crushing his job. I seriously wouldn't survive without him.
I am looking forward to a trip to Al Fong's coaches training this weekend, a soccer tournament in Springfield, Mo, our trip to Galveston, another trip to Texas for a gymnastics conference, vacation, and probably more that I can't remember at the moment!
For now, I have to check my calendar to make sure I am not missing an event!
