Gymnastics camp rocks!

In our attempt to help spur the economy, we went out and purchased a new television but Maisie's favorite part is of course the box, which still holds center stage in our family room. IMG_2554a The box picture was taken just before her first day of gymnastics camp on Tuesday. Maisie had a fabulous day at camp and was so energized and delighted with the entire experience. She was the youngest child by a good two or more years and it was so cute how all the 4,5 & 6 year old girls wanted to hold Maisie's hand, help her when they could and the cutest thing was when they showered her with hugs and kisses when saying goodbye. After four hours of activity she didn't want to leave and for two days solid all she's talked about was gymnastics camp, what they did and her new friends. She did learn more than gymnastics, she came home from camp with a new phrase and it just cracked me up. She was going through the box of strawberry Go-Gurts, setting a couple aside each time saying "ewwww, gross!" before finding the one she wanted. She's such a character. After such a busy morning I was hoping for a nice long nap but noooo..... she was too wired. Thankfully she went to bed early and got a good nights rest.

IMG_2598 This morning Maisie was all excited for her second day of camp and she looked so stinking cute I had to take a picture. After a little negotiating she allowed me to put her hair in ponies so to keep it out of her eyes. Surprisingly she kept the ponies in all morning but did manage to lose one of the decorative bands, which is probably meeting up with many other lost items at the bottom of the foam pit. She had another fabulous day and wanted to stay and play with her friends. I've never seen Maisie as energized or excited about an activity as she is when she's in the gym. I'm so happy that she's already found an activity that she loves and looks forward to everyday.
