Excellence isn't about Skill...It's about ATTITUDE!

And, today, the youngest had it in spades!
Ladies and Gentlemen, I would like to introduce you to Hawaii's Level 5 State Gymnastics All Around Champion!Hard work (and I do mean HARD work) paid off for this little boy and today he brought everything to the plate and did a spectacular job.
Of course, I love to see him win. What mom wouldn't? But, most of all, I love to see his hard work, faithful practice, and hours of dedication result in success. In the grand scheme of life, gymnastics isn't important. But, the things he is learning about perseverance and determination are things that will be so important later in life. I have watched this child work to the point of tears and still manage to smile. He takes every suggestion made by his coach to heart and give 110% to every task.
Congratulation, sweet boy. I am blessed to be your mother!

Very impressive. The video was perfect, too. My kids are enjoying gymnastics class right now, and loved watching him in action.

Thanks for sharing!
