Well, she survived. And so did I.
Little gymmie had her first "meet" (L2 in-house) on Friday night. We knew there were going to be a few issues, as she doesn't have her skills on bars...but I have to say, all in all, it was pretty good. I was terrified that she was going to be scared to go out there and compete...but let me tell you...She did her BEST floor routine EVER...fixed her backward roll and did a GREAT handstand:D and made it over on her vault without flopping into a forward roll. She had a lot of trouble w/ beam (fell on forward roll and forgot the 2nd half so she just walked and jumped off:rolleyes:). And she ALMOST got the pullover on the bar at the meet. I mean she was like a millimeter away from getting that booty over the bar!:p
Scores were not great but that is ok...we will take as much time as she needs because she LOVED competing. She LOVED it and she LOVED getting a medal and ribbons! She didn't care at all what place they were. I know she will at some point, but for now we are so very proud of her for getting out there.

Here are her scores, I can't wait to hopefully look back on this someday and see the improvement...
vault 8.0
bars 6.0
beam 6.15
floor 8.7:D

Thanks for reading...I am so glad this first meet is behind her and now that I know she liked it, we are going to keep on keepin' on and see if she can't catch up with some of these skills before the next meet!
