February Picture Almost Every Day–Day 12



I am so far behind on this project I’m not sure what to do.  But this pic is from Tuesday, Day 12, at gymnastics.  Claire on the beam.  I love watching her.  It’s something she loves, and I believe if she works hard could excel at.  But she is going to have to work hard.  Iain and I don’t really buy into the whole “gifted” concept…that some kids are given gifts that others are not.  That just seems kind of wrong.  We do buy into that kids who work hard can excel.  We try not to tell our kids how smart they are, or how good they are at something…but instead to praise them for hard work and effort.  So, I’d like to see her work hard at gymnastics!
