Galveston Wrap Up

We've been back from Texas for a week. The kids did a great job and had lots of fun (and a few tears). They work so hard to get to this point, that it is disappointing (to them) if their routines are not perfect. As parents, we are just so proud of them doing anything because to us, jump roping is near impossible.

Last time I posted about the team, I put flowers on them. I went more with the July theme this time and put fireworks on them.

Here is a video I put together of a bunch of different teams to give you an idea of what these kids do!

I had never used imovie before and WOW is it fun!!! Now I have to work on my videoing skills.

They are amazing!

A few years ago I decided to buy a jump rope. Evidently, my chest has changed dramatically since the last time I jumped rope. So ugly.

Holy SHIT!!!! This isn't just "jumping rope"... this is DANCING while jumping rope! Holy crap, this was just amazing to watch, Sue. Thanks so much for sharing it.

And yeah, that imovie looks really cool. I may have to try it some day.
