Fall Festival


Today was the Fall Festival at Maisie’s school.  The children enjoyed carnival games, candies, treats and face painting, it was good fun for everyone.  At the end of the festival two of the coaches from Maisie’s gym came so that Maisie and two of her schoolmates who also attend North Metro could do a gymnastics demonstration for the school.

IMG_1571eBrooke, Kaity & Maisie each performed their floor routine and then they each demonstrated a higher level skill which they have been working on.  For her skill Maisie did a round-off back handspring, a USA Level 4 skill.

When the coaches asked if there were any questions, one of the children asked if the girls could do splits.

IMG_1574eSplits are no problem.

On the drive home I asked Maisie what her favorite part of the festival was, to which she replied, “doing the demonstration of course.”  I wasn’t surprised.

Today I am again featuring Maisie’s Caramel Apples because she was so pleased with her creations.  Today Maisie brought one in for her teacher Miss. Lisa, she donated one for the cakewalk at the Fall Festival and we have two remaining at home…still left to be eaten.  Maisie loves all the cooking together but then often she can’t be bothered to eat, maybe tomorrow we’ll give her apples a try.  Click on the picture to be taken to the recipe.
