This past weekend daughter had her 2nd meet level 4 she did really well improved her AA score to 34.3 from 33.55. I was in shock when she got her 1st 9 ever on the beam and for some freaky reason I decided to try video tape her beam rountine the video did not come out great but I will try to figure out how to post it . All her other scores were in the 8's much better than last year. I think the best part of it was her other team mates all did well and placed around the same as her so everybody was happy. Now we get a break from the meets until the end of January so I can chill out and relax, getting ready for the meets, traveling to them and watching them is pure exhaustion.:D

WOOHOOO! Congrats! I love the breaking into a "9" finally feeling too. Last year my DD only got 9's vaulting. This year she has only yet to get a 9 on beam...UGH! It's great when the whole team does well too...really a confidence booster! I'm getting exhausted too. We only have our "meet" that we are hosting in Jan, States, and then a fun meet in February then we are DONE!

Great improvement on her AA, joining the 9 club on the beam is always impressive.

Very Very cool! Congrats!

I recall Nastia's first 9. I could tell she wanted jump off the matt and dance when her score was revealed. That's one of those "i'll never forget" moments. At least for me.

Mine did:eek:! It was hilarious - she is well known for her dancing:rolleyes:! I better be careful, if there is anyone here from my gym, they'll surely know who I am now!:D Oh well, if gymnastics doesn't work out, dancing could be her fall back!

I know what you mean! I get so nervous too, and everytime I try to take photos or video they are never very good because my hands shake too much!

Great job on Panda girl's 2nd meet and a 9 on beam!!
