A sign up sheet went around on Sunday at church that requested for people to share their talents. I'm assuming it is for an upcoming talent show or something. A few weeks ago I had ordered some sheet music for the Shirley Temple Song "On The Good Ship Lollipop" and have been trying to teach myself to play it and Gwen to sing it. So I signed us up.

But it reminded me of the last talent show I preformed in. Sam convinced me to do my old floor routine for a talent show we had at church when we were newlyweds. It was a lot of fun to do.

All the memories gave me enough of the gymnastics bug to dig out my old stuff. I played a VHS tape of a performance from my Senior year. While watching the videos I got out my camera and took some videos on it so we could have the performance in a digital format, however rough it might be.

Here is my bar routine. I have always LOVED bars and it was my best event.

My next favorite was floor and I did fine with that too.

Here is my vault. I do a front handspring, then a 1/2 on 1/2 off that actually looks like a 1/4 on 1/4 off. :) oops!

I was SO bad at beam, but we only had 8 girls on our team, so we all had to be all arounds. It terrified me every time I got up there. As you can see, I'm not so good at staying on. :S

I post them here on my project page because gymnastics was a great project of my youth. It shaped me into who I am through the lessons I learned in the gym. Also, if I find some time to practice and things look hopeful, I might consider signing up to do a watered down floor routine at the upcoming talent show.

Today Gwen and I practiced some skills in the backyard. It was fun, but the grass was itchy.
