Gymnastics banquet

Who da’thunk that a five year old would have two banquets within three days but that’s just what my little social butterfly had.  Last night was Maisie’s end of year gymnastics team banquet where all the athletes who were on a competitive team last year, along with their families, gathered for a look back and to honor all the great work, effort and achievements that they all put forward and accomplished throughout the year.  Also honored were the coaches, volunteers and parents and then there was a sad and tearful farewell to the graduating Seniors.

IMG_7531I love this picture of the girls as they have such personality, they love one another and they adore being teammates.  Missing from the picture is Tia and on the drive home Maisie talked about how sad it was that Tia missed the evening and how she wished that she could have been there for all the fun.  I’m so glad that all these girls moved up to USA level 3 together and will have another season together.   (L to R:  Caroline, Savannah, Mara, Maisie, Taylor & Aspen.)

IMG_7530eThe athletes sat at tables with their teammates…not with Mama, she’s getting so grown up…whimper, cry.

It was a fun evening and through all the presentations, speeches, slide shows, picture taking and dinner, Maisie, her teammates and all the athletes were attentive, polite and very mature.  We didn’t arrive home until minutes before 10PM so it was a quick change and into bed for my little, tired, beautiful, princess, banquet loving athlete.
