The finale to the recital season was her team's annual spring recital, which ends the season. They performed to Salute, which was perfect for the recital's "Salute to the Troops theme (there are performances from beginning toddler tumblers, to the Island Flyer's competition team). Kaia starts out third from the right. On her last tumbling run she performs her layout for the first time.
And just this past Monday night, she was invited to the awards ceremony for making the Honor Roll for her first semester of middle school. Great job Kaia! One of her favorite areas of study this year was writing poetry. She wrote on many subjects, but my personal favorite was a poem about her sister
Is a very athletic girl.
She loves to run and play soccer.
(“Ha, you just got beaten by a girl!” she says)
And doesn't believe in failure.
Is a kind person.
She helps people in need.
My sister shows compassion,
To people and animals.
(“are you ok?”she asks)
And is encouraging.
She doesn't use her missing
Arm as an excuse.
(she sometimes says“A shark bit it off”)
And is confident about herself!
I am glad to
have a sister like
her to keep my
head above the clouds.
(Kaia:“I am glad to have a friend
And sister like her!:)
