Locks of Love

Ann-Marie had decided that after her last gymnastics competition of the season, she would donate her very long hair to Locks of Love. So yesterday, we went to Great Clips in Chippewa and had 11 inches to donate! The beautician there was very kind and gave Ann-Marie a super cute inverted bob. She loves it! The haircut is free if you donate to Locks of Love, so this is a shout-out to the wonderful service we received. Ann-Marie is so excited to show her new haircut to friends and family!

Luau in Leos - last gymnastics meet of season

This past weekend was Ann-Marie's last gymnastics meet of the season. It was also at Kalahari Resort - an indoor water park/hotel/conference center. We were able to spend the weekend, enjoy some wonderful family time, support Ann-Marie during her last meet, get to know some of the other gymnastics parents and kids, and have a great time! Ann-Marie ended her season well. She medaled in two individual events and performed her best floor and beam routine of the season. She achieved her personal goal of getting her first 9, which was on vault. I have posted her vault (sorry, it is so hard to get a good shot of the vault - you'll have to watch closely) and her beam routine. We are so proud of the hard work and dedication she has shown this season, as well as her positive attitude and resilience.
