The Games of the 1st Olympiad

Four events: beam, vault, floor, and bars. Four perfect 10.0's and four gold medals (everyone won gold).

The three amigos. Little Sophie, Hannah Banana, and Holly Hobby. 


Event 1. The Beam. Notice the poise and grace.


The floor. Cartwheels take some concentration, especially when you hardly know your left foot from your right. 

Her best event. The bars. This chick is holding on to her but on a normal day she can flip over by herself. 

Finally, the trophy presentation. They lowered the flags and blared the Olympic theme. 


And one little girl was beyond pumped to get her hands on her first ever trophy. I like she has it hoisted above her head. And check out that neck full of gold. 


I totally felt as though the parents should have gotten a medal for chasing these crazy kids around a gym for the past 9 months. Under appreciated and never recognized, so goes the life of a mom.

Watch out, she'll be wanting to buy an entire curio cabinet to display that one little trophy. I speak from experience here. Maybe Soph and Emma can get together and compare trophies.

The entire event was a blast. But I must admit when they lowered the flags and Sophie stood up on the podium and raised her trophy up over her head, I had tears rolling down my face. Only thing though, they were tears of laughter. That is one funny little girl. Phelps could take lessons from her on how to work a crowd during a ceremony.

That is so adorable. I had no idea they did all that for the kids. You can tell how proud Sophie was to get that trophy!
