I'm excited for the travel and to visit new places and to attend the Olympic Trials, but is it wrong I'm also excited for the season to be over? I'm not a fan of all the stress that the season brings to my house.

Haha, i will go out in a limb and say I am NOT excited! Meet season always has me full of fear and worry and dread! Will she stick or will she fall? Will she live? . Will she be sick or injured all season? LOL, I am excited though about all the wine I will have to get me through!
My kiddo is excited to compete level 8 with upgraded skills. She broke her elbow 1 meet into level 8 last year, so is not really “repeating” it this year. After some gym drama and a gym change She is most excited to be part of a large team with coaches that a super supportive and make her feel great about herself!!

This year I am most excited to see my oldest daughter's new floor routine! It is her fist year at level 10 and she is coming off of a "most entertaining" floor routine win from level 9 Easterns last season. She pours her heart and soul into floor and I am amazed every time I watch her perform!

I am equally as excited to watch my younger daughter conquer level 9 bars! She has grown so much. She is about 5' 6" now and it amazes me that bars is still her favorite event. She has definitely figured out how to make her height work to her advantage!

Since DD sat out most of last season due to injury, I'm excited to see how she does this season. Not looking forward to travel meets though. Those are a pain.

I feel you - this will be my DD's 4th year level 10 and I still feel nervous for her. I'm not sure that feeling will ever go away.

lol

I'm excited to watch my daughter enjoy her sport after changing gyms 9 months ago as well no longer training HOPEs. This past season felt more rushed than anything with trying to attempt HOPEs while competing L9. While some kids can handle both mine definitely couldn't and that's okay. My daughter has fallen back in love with the sport under her "new" coaches as well embraces the lower hours than the previous gym. This season for us is about having fun while traveling and not paying attention to scores/placements.

Vault might be one of my child's better events this season? Words I never thought I'd say...
Vault has always been Puma Jr’s nemesis...she‘s been working really hard and doing privates with a new coach (not just on vault but he’s helped her awkward run, as well as many other things, A LOT) so we’re hoping this will be her best vault year! I think *I* will do a back flip if (when?!) she actually finally gets that elusive 9.0 on vault.... (where’s the fingers crossed emoji?! lol) Good luck to yours!!
