Champion!

Calvin had his first gymnastics meet last night, and he won FOUR medals! He was in the 7 and under category. I wish I would have gotten some video of when they called his name the first time. He had this look on his face like "hey, there's someone else named Calvin? Wait a minute! That's me!!". It was especially funny because he is the only boy. He was so giggly by the third time. Anyone who knows him can just imagine his face and his hand on his forehead, "I can't believe this!".

He placed first in Vault (9.3), Beam (8.45 I think), and Floor (8.8). Here is his floor exercise:


He placed second All Around (I don't remember his score). Afterwards, we went to Culver's to celebrate. :D We had such a good time, and he was so proud of himself. Gymnastics has been so good for him. Monday is his last class, and he's extra excited for it to start up again in January. He wanted to call a bunch of people last night, but then was too tired.

Way to go Calvin, I'm so proud of you!
