Remember the American Girl Doll of the Year, McKenna? She was a gymnast. Aliza introduced Anna to the McKenna video quite a while ago and Anna has watched it who know how many times. Anna doesn't watch it for the story--she watches it to learn gymnastics. Anna also watches some youtube gymnastics videos too. I finally picked a date to take Anna to open gym at Beachbounders. Anna marked off the days on the calendar and talked endlessly about what she was going to wear.
The day finally arrived and the last hour seemed like it was going to last forever! Getting ready included getting dressed, a high ponytail (because that's how everybody does their hair) and makeup. Especially sparkly eye shadow. (I don't have many options so thankfully what I had was good enough!)
