This One Time? In Gymnastics Camp?

Audrey's in a two-week gymnastics camp this week and next. You might remember my victory dance in the end zone that I blogged about a few weeks back when I called to inquire about it and got an earful about how wonderful my daughter was *still cabbage-patching*

Thankfully, two friends from school are attending the same camp, so it wasn't too difficult of a transition to get Audrey to go. Besides those two friends, there's only one other kid in the camp that they don't know.

Here's how it's gone so far...

Day 1: Total kumbaya love-fest.

Day 2: Straight in the crapper.
In what will forever be known as the Great Yellow Balloon Incident of 2011, Audrey is accused of bogarting Grace Anne's you-know-what. Yellow balloon.  Pay attention people!  Sheesh.

All I know is that when I arrived at the pickup, Grace Anne was crying, Noah ran out of the room screaming like he was on fire, TJ started crying because everyone else was crying, and Audrey came sauntering out with a yellow balloon in her hands saying that she "needed to take a walk".

Audrey stood accused of stealing Grace Anne's yellow balloon, but I would like to submit the picture to the right into evidence. I'm afraid that the Green Lickety-Lime Crayola marker does not lie. Case closed.

Day 3:
Grace Anne brings a bag of yellow balloons with smiley faces on them to share with everyone and peace is restored.

Day 4:

  2. I had no idea Audrey was so advanced in her contortionist skills. Either that, or that camp is HELLA good!

  4. That must be Audrey on the top of the pyramid. The helium from the balloon probably made her float right up there! No wonder there was all that drama over the balloon. Glad to see that camp is a success! ;)

  5. That is one jam-packed week! I can't believe how quickly they all recovered and managed to pull out the mad gymnastics skills.

    And they'll be performing at Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas from 6/24-7/10/11, tickets on sale now.

  6. Wow, she got good in 4 days! I guess all that cabbage patching paid off.

  7. Since Billy has started gymnastics, spontaneous demonstrations of his skills (forward rolls, headstands and his warm-up stretches) have joined dancing as his favorite things to do in any open public space.

    So be prepared.

  12. It looks like she is ready for the more advanced level of gymnastics based on Day 4 :) Like the Olympics next summer. Everyone knows the yellow balloons are the best!! Grace Anne's mom was amazing with the bag of balloons to share! So glad it sounds like everyone is having a good time! Can't wait to hear what she starts scripting from camp!!

  13. Um yeah, you would call it The Great Yellow Balloon Incident of 2011, cause you two snuck out with the most coveted piece of latex within a 3 mile radius.

  15. Damn, she's good.
    She was probably framed for the balloon incident. Camp can be mean like that.
