Mock Meet

In preparation for competition season Maisie has a mock meet this afternoon at her gym.  The girls all need to have their hair pulled back into a bun as if they were at a real meet so that any potential hair problems can be worked out.  They won’t be wearing their competition leotards today but instead they’ll all wear their matching zebra leotards from team camp.  The meet will run just like an a real meet with the girls all receiving real scores. 

Maisie’s looking forward to this afternoon as she has a lot of fun being with her teammates and competing.  I said to Eammon this morning that for us, the most difficult part of any meet is getting Maisie’s hair done as I’m not good at doing it and she really doesn’t like having her hair up or especially having hair spray applied.

IMG_9321eIt’s pretty wonky as I’m so-not good at the hair thing but she’s still stinkin’ adorable and at least all the hair is pulled back so that it won’t be in her face.
