The girls have finally-- officially-- started gymnastics. Dance if fun for them but Mia just has a very natural ability with gymnastics and Finley seems to follow suit so we decided to officially enroll both of them. Mia has self taught herself the round off, cartwheel and other way beyond her age skills. She can jump into the middle splits without even thinking about it. She has an amazing strength to body weight ratio and she is very muscular. That serves her well in gymnastics. We decided to split the girls into different classes because their skill levels were so different. Don't get me wrong-- Finley is quite adept as well but is more at the front roll/ back roll level. Anyway, they had a great time at gymnastics and we are so fortunate to have a great kids program at our local gym. Mia is in Kinderstars where they work on more tumbling/ bar work and Finley is in Tiny Stars which is a preschool beginners class (one step from mommy and me). Both girls did amazing and are so excited to go back again soon!!!!
Mia getting ready to go on the long trampoline-- sorry there are few pictures of Mia. I started taking pictures with my phone and then moved to my other lame camera so I cant seem to get the Mia pics off my phone-- sorry!
Bouncing down the trampoline-- gotta love her little cheeks hanging out. Her lipoma (bump) on her bum always pulls her undies or whatever she is wearing up her bum. It is kind of cute but I am always pulling whatever she is wearing down.

I think Finley gets a lot of her daring personality from just having that personality but I do think having Mia as her sister helps. Mia has no fear and does things with her little body that is way beyond her years. Having Mia as an older sister model helps push Finley to push the envelope.
She also jumps off the side of the slide -- the taller ones too. She freaks out all the parents as they watch-- I love it because they are looking for her parents to stop her and they have no idea I am mom because I am not Asian and then after her trick I cheer and clap and people look at us with confusion. I get such a kick out of that!

We went to Northwoods Inn which is very "American" with steaks and all kinds of old west type cuisine. The boys had already arranged a sleep over with friends so they were unable to come to dinner. The girls have a bunch of clippies in their hair that Ms. Wang sent with Maggie as gifts.
All the girls!!! The girls loved Maggie and quickly warmed up to her. Mia said that Maggie was a pretty Chinese grown up and she wants to be pretty like Maggie someday. I thought that was so cute!
