Jonah had his first gymnastic meet of his level 6 season in Galveston. Unfortunately the morning of the meet Jonah woke up with a fever and sore throat. He still competed and did well considering how he felt. He managed to finish 1st on parallel bars and 9th AA. Then diagnosed with strep throat!

In Colorado Springs, Jonah explored Garden of the Gods with his teammates while Drew and Samuel explored the Air Force Academy. Both boys were in their element...Jonah outside and Samuel soaking up anything about the military! Samuel and Drew went to an Air Force ice hockey game Saturday night and Jonah went to a collegiate gymnastics meet. Again, both boys getting to enjoy what they love!
Jonah had an amazing second meet of the season. He finished 2nd AA and had several individual places as well. It was his first solid meet in a long while and he was super excited!
|Excuse the poor picture quality, but there is Jonah in 2nd place AA!|
Emma's level 6 season began as well. It was a full month of traveling to meets. Her first meet was in Fort Worth so we had a quick girl's getaway. Emma had not competed since November 2015 so she was super excited to compete and I was happy to watch her again. It was a great meet to watch. Emma had a beautiful floor routine earning a 9.6 which is one of her highest scores ever! I honestly keep watching the video because it is just such a pretty routine. She also had a great vault. With a decent beam and bar routine she finished in 3rd AA, 2nd place floor, and 4th on vault in her age group. It was a solid beginning to her season!

Jonah "graduated" from cub scouts. He has decided not to continue with boy scouts which honestly makes me very happy. He loves it, learned so much, and had so much fun. However, with gymnastics and all our other commitments, it's just so hard to find the time for scouts. Jonah made great friends through scouting and I do hope they stay friends!
Elena and Samuel didn't have any exciting moments like Emma and Jonah in January. But, of course, I still took pictures of their adorable faces!
February is my favorite month of the year! It's my birthday month and I do love my birthday. This year Drew and I have big plans for the big 42 and I cannot wait! Samuel has his birthday too! Our pretend winter will soon be over and spring will arrive. Baseball begins and it's almost rodeo time. There is so much to look forward to and I just know this month will be kinder to our family!
