    WAG Greensboro Gymnastics Invitational Feb 12-14 2016

    That's right, it was a Wednesday.. I remember being there in the afternoon on a week day but was thinking it as Friday.. Now that you said Wednesday it all came back.. We actually left and drove back for the Nastia and American Cup instead of her missing several days of school. Ugh

    WAG Greensboro Gymnastics Invitational Feb 12-14 2016

    We competed there 2 seasons ago. If I remember correctly the 10's went on Friday afternoon.. They also had more then 1 session of 10's. We just happened to be in that particular session.

    For Parents Balancing gymnastics and academics

    Up until this year my Dd has done a good job of getting her work done. In in the past she wasn't getting a lot of HW but this year it has been grueling. She leaves for practice right from school and doesn't get home until almost 10:00 pm. Then she generally has about 1.5 to 2 hours worth of HW...
