Announcing the Level 7 All-Around Champion at our first meet of the season.

Total score 36.4 (out of 40) with FIRST on uneven bars, and tied for FIRST on balance beam.


THREE gold medals around her cute little neck.



On my phone with her dad after her big win.


edit: apologies for the further-out photos being a bit fuzzy, but wait until Kelly gets the new camera she’s been saving up for!! We gonna be zooming in BIG TIME with precision. I hope anyway — for a $500 camera! :) :)

And….. here were the Dec. Jan. Friends Of The Month…

Be Sociable, Share!

    I’m gonna comment first!!!

    Kelly, considering last season you did not even have a bar routine, and NOW you know you can earn at least a 9.45 on that event — it really shows the proverbial “where there’s a will there’s a way,” and “mind over matter.” WE ARE ALL SO PROUD OF YOU!!!!!!!!!!! You’ve worked so so so hard. Good job, and keep going!!!

    Yeah Kelly. Proud and supportive parents are proof that our children can achieve anything. The start of even better things to come.

    Hey, thanks, Awesome Gord. And did you check out my tumblr blog? I have a link up top to it now. I re-tumble others’ posts, sometimes a dozen posts a day. As to your comment on support, I think for us it’s 1/3 parenting, 1/3 coaching and 1/3 team mate friendship.

    Yep, Bo-Binnie. It was a smaller meet, and she will need to keep her game up for the upcoming bigger meets, but she’s totally got most of the skills down, and is working diligently on getting the others great too. And holy freaking cow — on vault she can do a WHOLE TWIST off that table!!!!! She got a 9.1 on vault — her highest score yet!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! She rocks!! And our gym ROCKS!!!

    Wow. That’s so impressive, Kelly. You go girl:~)

    You and Jim must be “beaming” with pride and joy!!! As are we all who have watched her grow up. It’s nice to visit here and feel the excitement of seeing Kelly becoming such a marvelous and talented young lady.

    Sometimes I wonder why I keep blogging and visiting, but then I come to post, like this one, and I remember why I do it:~)

    * ConGrats Champion Kelly! *

    Very Shiny costumes too-

    I’ve been fighting with a new cam myself- not many decent pics in 3 weeks yet. So hard to learn Auto when you’re a manual pic taker…

    Hey, G.B.! It was an AWESOME meet! And we (the team) got to all hang out together for 2 whole days, doing the hotel thang.

    Ahhh, Sara, thanks. I hope you always keep being my blog visitor. I have more lyrics for my next post, a song called “Everybody’s Buttocks Are Beautiful.” You will hopefully get a smile from it. I’m actually gonna get back on FB after I post this (well, call Mom first,) and put up a Youtube of our more recent meet. She made a 9.425 on floor! And I know she can get it to at least a 9.6, and higher, she’s getting stronger.

    Yep, totally My Dear Daisy! She does work hard at her training.

    Hey, Bri! Yep, pretty cool. We are all so proud of and happy for her.

    Yes, Snaggle I LOVE the warm-ups. We got all-new ones and brand new leotards again this year. WAIT until you see said leo. Even prettier than last year’s, which has a hard one to top. Congrats on your new camera. Are you used to Auto yet?

    Dearest Hilary! How ARE you??!! I shall be emailing you again soon. Thinking of you a lot and hope all went well!!! And since I love bragging-up on Kelly — she did AWESOME again at her meet since the one in this post,l a much bigger event — first on Bars again and 2nd in the All-Around.

    Hey, Linda — do I brag too much? :) Yes, sweet little Rosie your angel cat.

    Thank you Dear Lovely Claudia. It is fun to win!!! And really means something because to have to be really GOOD to get the medals.

    Hey, Dr. J! It really is paying off, lots of muscle work. And courage on them bars.
