Scout competed in her first EVER gymnastics competition today in the Waverley Gymnastics for All Challenge. Her team – Team PINK Pocket Rockets (in case her hair is not a sufficient indicator) won GOLD in her division (for kids 6-8) . So proud of my graceful monkey. She’s put in so much effort and really deserved it.
But then ALL the kids deserved the accolades. It’s not an easy thing for a 6 or 7 year old to get up in front of an audience and judges and perform. Hell, it’s not easy for a 30 year old, I don’t care how confident you are. The way they organised it was lovely – there were team medals for first, second and third place, but no-one went home without a medal. So encouraging competition, but not in a fierce way. All for that.
