Maisie had an absolute blast at her very first gymnastics meet and can’t wait to compete again. Maisie did very well and we are just so very proud of her. Her entire team really stepped it up, put their best performances forward and they all did great!
I had my concerns and doubts about how Maisie would perform or hold up as the night before we had huge thunder and lightning storms roll through the area so Maisie had fitful sleep all night and was completely awake from 1-3am. We had to be at the gym very early and come wake-up time of 6am, she really didn’t want to get out of bed but once up, she got going and had a fabulous day.
I’m so proud of my girl, she did so well!! In the end, Maisie walked away with 4 medals, vault, beam, floor and all-around a pretty fantastic day!
After the meet Eammon, Maisie and I along with Anne, K & A went out for a delicious spicy Sichuan lunch at one of our favorite places. We then headed back home where Maisie, K and A stayed with Eammon and played while Anne & I headed to the store to pick up ingredients for a dinner party she was hosting. Anne and I then spent the rest of the afternoon cooking and then we all enjoyed a wonderful dinner together.
Come 8:30 though Maisie and I were done, exhausted and ready for bed so we headed home. I took out the little buns which had been in all day and Maisie was absolutely delighted with her curly hair! She said that she and I looked like twins and she had to rush back next door to K & A’s to show off her curls!
Maisie has only two more meets this year, one in each October and November. Because of our cruise in September she’ll miss that meet and in December she’ll miss State Meet because it’s the first weekend we’re in Aruba. Now that my little girl is competing I’ll have to work our vacation schedule not only around school but her meet schedule!
