Flips and jumps and balancing!!


Living in a Midwestern University city has its benefits -- great museums, great arts and musical performances -- and what is most important to many in this state - great sports! Although we don't often get to see all of the University sports teams (many are sold out way ahead of time!), today we went to see the final Women's Gymnastics meet against Iowa State. Bonus -- we all received bandannas too!


Senior Tricia Woo -- she was AMAZING!!






Gotta have some snacks!!

I've never seen a gymnastics meet at this level . . . except for on tv! And bonus -- it was "Pepsi* Pack the House" so admission and all Pepsi* products were only $1!! I love me a bargain! Maddy and I had so much fun. We took our neighbor, Sarah, who is a 2nd grader, and those two girls were a riot. Afterwards, they were trying out some balance beam moves along the carpet lines -- I think they need a LOT more practice. And yay -- Nebraska won the meet! Go Huskers! The NCAA championships will be in our fair town in April, so hope we will be attend and cheer on the Big Red!

What FUN!! That sounds like the perfect way to spend the afternoon! When I was Maddy's age, I used to love to watch anything that had to do with gymnastics, but never got to see one live...what a treat!!

Love their new moves:)

Have a great week!
