Every Thursday since January we have been making the 7 miles stretch down Hickman to Adel Tumbling Dance Team studio. We enrolled Peyton in tumbling to get her involved in something for the winter and to stay in touch with her “sister”/bff Vivian from Karmens.
This Saturday morning we woke up early, braided and hair sprayed her hair, got on her leotard, and ended to Adel High School for the big Tumbling Meet. The gym was filled with over 100 family and friends watching these kids. She was the fifth little girl to go and walked up to the mat with confidence, all eyes on her and nailed her tumbling pass with a big smile on her face. I couldn’t have been more proud and it wasn’t because of her awesome summersaults but because of her confidence that she had. This was a different little girl than a year ago who wouldn’t leave her mom’s side and loved seeing her enjoying every minute of it!
