Gym Talk: Robyn Price
Monday, October 18, 2010
Hey!!  This is Robyn Price from the Centenary Ladies gymnastics team!  I am a freshman this year, and man do I love it here.  When I first realized I was going to be coming to Shreveport (5 hours away from home) I was a little scared.  But I have been living here for almost 2 months now and I feel right at home!  This gymnastics team is not like any other.  We are a FAMILY! 

We have had busy schedules lately, but it has been so very worth it.  At the beginning of this week we started our fitness testing!  This is just to show us how strong we are as a team and to let us start focusing on our goals.  Even when things felt a little difficult, our team was so positive and cheered everyone on which made it seem so much easier!!  It was awesome!! 

Our team feels like it is very important to support and be a part of the community that is supporting us!   And since this week was fall break we were given extra time to do so!  We went to a local school, Southfield School, and taught first and second graders how to play a card game that would strengthen their addition and subtraction skills.  It was awesome to see the impact we had on these children and to see a glimpse of what these students could bring into the future!  We also worked at a carnival and assisted children in different games and rides.  It is amazing to see how contagious the student's smiles can be!!

After a hard week of practice the team decided to have a relaxing movie night together at "Movies and Moonbeams."  This is an event that the Shreveport Parks and Recreation puts on every couple of weeks in different city parks around Shreveport.  A big outdoor projection screen plays a family friendly movie, and concessions are there as well!  This week was a seasonal movie, Wallace and Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit.  We all brought our blankets, popcorn, and hot chocolate to snuggle up and watch a movie.  It was a nice team bonding time, and another great way to be out in our community! 

We are in the process of getting some great videos up on the web.  You won't want to miss some of our fun, crazy, and fantastic practices!! 

We have had a great weekend!  Just recharging and getting ready to take on the new week!!  Hope everyone has had a good weekend also, and we will be keeping you posted with our next Gymtalk soon!!  Thanks for reading!!
