Palmetto Invitational

This past weekend our little gymnast had another meet. Luckily, this one was only about 30 minutes away. So, around 7:15 am, with coffee's in hand, we all loaded up to head out.
This meet was pretty nice & well done. They actually had some activities for the children, such as jumpy castles, batting cages and putt putt. The older brothers appreciated this very much.

Our girls being introduced.

Checking in with the beam judges.

I usually take tons of pictures during meets, but this time I decided I would spend more time watching than snapping. Well, wouldn't 'cha know it, she decided to do the best she's EVER done.....on EVERYTHING.

She flipped and twirled her way to these fabulous scores:

Vault: 9.0

Bars: 9.0

Beam: 9.35

Floor: 9.15

That was just wonderful - we are so proud of her hard work.

When I went over to her after her last event, she smiled as big as possible and said, "I did my best for Daddy." You see, Daddy doesn't get to come to all of the competitions so she wanted to do her very best for him. How sweet is that?

We only have 3 more regular competitions and then her State Meet is in March.

Looks like she's getting her routines perfected just in time.

Great job, G - we love you and are very proud!

Awesome! My daughter wants to quit dance and start taking gym. She has been dancing about 5 years. I guess she is needing a break. I will have to show her this post~
