Mia has been invited to join the competitive gymnastics team where she works out. She really wants to do it but I am not so sure I want her to.

It is a great workout.
Mia loves gymnastics.
Options for scholarships if she sticks with it.
Mia REALLY wants to do it.

Very time consuming - 3 times a week compared to once a week.
It is more money.
We are required to do fund raisers and I HATE fund raisers.

What would you do? She won't be travelling for meets until she is in level 4 but she is jumping from level 1 to level 3. Is 7 too young to be in competitive gymnastics? Will it take the fun out of going to the gym?

We have had a busy couple of months. In May Seth and I went to Puerto Rico. In June we went camping in Moab, went to the Cabin and camped in my parents back yard. We have also had swimming lessons every day. Mia and Ellis are in soccer which takes up Monday through Thursday. Jared is in a basketball club that meets every Monday and Wednesday. We also went fishing and hiking to celebrate the Fourth of July.

We have a couple more camping trips planned. Scouts starts up again this week. And we have Ellis' birthday to celebrate. I have taken tons of pictures. I am hoping to put some online but I am not entirely sure that is going to happen.

I love this summer vacation with the kids but it will be nice when we can slow back down. I think 3 months is not even close to enough time for a summer vacation.

I hope you are having a relaxing summer.
