Last weekend we spent the day in Taupo watching this wee girl competing in another round of her gym comp.
This sassy young lady always amazes me when it comes to her gymnastics. Her effort and determination even when things don't always go her way. She is at level 'Step Four' She never shows any signs of being disappointed if she doesn't manage to pass on the day, she smiles and carries on. Even when we talk about it at home she is always 'meh and its not that she doesn't care, she's just not the type of kid to let these things overwhelm her. She will pass I have no doubt about that, she doesn't doubt that.
Meanwhile she will continue to pour every ounce of engery she has into practicing,no-one can doubt her dedication. She will gain strength in the areas she needs to and she will learn that when she does pass this level (be it this year or next year) that great acheivement takes work, dedication and confidence. She has been so close with her scores so we know its not too far away. She makes us proud with every attempt. Well done Tayla on everything you have achieved so far in and out of the gym. You really are a total champ.
This weekend she will head to New Plymouth, New Zealand.
She will come away a champion no matter what, why? Because she will enter a champion that's why!
