Run, Tuck and Roll

Last night was the gymnastics Christmas party. I am so glad we decided to stay. Since the gym was open for team members and their family's only we were allowed to do whatever we wanted. That included the parents. So some of us took advantage and tried some gymnastics moves ourselves. I am proud to say that I managed to land a double front into the pit and I was the only parent who managed to climb the rope to the ceiling. I even got enough guts to free fall from the ceiling into the pit. Needless to say, Matt warned me that he was not taking me to the hospital for any broken bones. I didn't want to admit to him this morning that I could barely get out of bed I was so sore.

Here I am doing a front tuck into the pit. This may even be my double front.
