We weren't sure if James would be able to compete all the events, because on Thursday he jammed his finger playing basketball at school. It was swollen up and he couldn't bend it all the way. Fortunately, it healed fast and he didn't seem to have any trouble with it today!
He had a good meet: first place on rings, first place on vault, fourth place on parallel bars, high bar, and floor. (He fell on the pommel horse/mushroom, so no surprise that he didn't place on that one!) And he came in third place overall, which earned him a fancy trophy. Their team won first place.
(At his last hearing aid appointment, they gave him new tubes for his hearing aids -- which is annoying because they're a little too long for gymnastics, and so his hearing aids flop around when he's doing his floor routine. Not sure if it's fixable without making them too short! We tried to put some sticky stuff on them to temporarily stick them to his skin, but either it wasn't strong enough or it wore off.)
Meanwhile, Rochester was breaking February temperature records by getting into the low 60s. We didn't stick around after the meet to enjoy it, but the boys had a great afternoon here (temps in the mid-50s) playing outside with their friends and even riding bikes.
