2010 Elite Team Camp

This Thursday through Sunday Maisie is attending her gym's elite team camp. This camp is different from the gymnastics camp she'll attend starting next week as this is an intensive four day training camp only for those children who are on competitive teams.  Thursday was a short three hour day with all the gymnasts gathering just after lunch at the gym where they received their t-shirts, met the guest coaches, did their warm-up exercises and started their practice then after a short break there was a fun kick-off pool party.  Friday through Sunday are full 7-hour days filled with strength and conditioning training as well as learning and practicing new skills.  Maisie and her teammates should be good and tired at the end of each day.

    Good lord, I think I worked up a sweat just looking at those photos. She's a powerhouse!

  6. Your girl is amazing. I KNOW we will be seeing her in the olympics (my favorite) when she is old enough.

    IF you have mailed the sheets we haven't received ours. Just to let you know in case they have already gone out. No biggie we can wait....if you haven't sent them

  7. Wow!! It's easy to see how hard she's worked already and how she pays attention to detail. Great bridge with pointed toes Maisie! She's so little among all the big girls.

    Way to go Maisie! Hope you're having fun at gymnastics camp! Maybe you can show Hannah some of your great moves when we're in Utah together?

  8. Yes, I'm excited for the day that we watch the Olympics and see little Miss Maisie! I'll bet it happens! And my gosh, I can't believe the energy that little one has! Amazing is right!
