She's fearless with those head first flips!Yes I posted this video of her tragic dismount and it is funny, but what you can't see (because I stopped videoing when I thought she was hurt) is that right after this video she hopped up from the mat with laughter and got right back up on that beam! Such great life lessons from my little 6 yr old in that moment. It's takes adults a long time to learn "It's ok to laugh at ourselves" and "when we fail we can try, try again!" I'm not a huge competitive sports fan but if my child can learn these truths through sports then I'm grateful for that!
As we walked to the next station hand in hand she confessed that she was a little sore, but that was all I heard of the matter. Since then she has enjoyed watching herself fall over and over and over again, laughing every time.
See ya in 2016 Metro!
