A Good Meet!

Bella is third from the left on the bottom.


Sophia and Bella


Thanks for the prayers. The girls had a great meet. Sophia , for the first time in a meet conquered her kip and squat on, two moves on the bar that have been a thorn in her side all year. The judges were tough, they didn't give you anything, but it was a great experience for the girls. They competed against some very good teams. These girls are practicing between 16 - 20 hours a week, compared to our girls who are there seven hours. So even though Sophia didn't place at this meet, we all agreed it was one of her best and we were so proud of her, especially her bar routine.

Bella placed third on vault, and 1oth all around. No easy feat when the starting scores are around 9.6. There was even a 10!!! They don't give 10's!! Like I said these girls were tough!

Bella's team took third place for the level 4's.

It was a fun day that went very smoothly, that's always a plus. Now a day of rest!

CONGRATULATIONS!!!! To both the girls, you must be so very proud. I know I was so proud of Vir when he took part in his Karate tournament a couple of months back, he didn't place anything but the fact that he took part so beautifully, and so confidently was enough for me, even his own teacher was so impressed with his error free performance was so satisfying! Well, give the girls a big hug and you enjoy your day of rest!!!

Too cute. I wish I could come to a meet. I did gymnastics when I was little. I opted to stick to dancing though when I bruised 3 ribs falling on the beam!
