Just a little pre-meet photo op! Waiting on the fun to begin!
Stretching and getting ready, while we nervously wait the start! Maddie's team was MUCH smaller than the other teams. But, each girl is very good!
Their first event was the beam, which is a pretty tough place to start. She rocked it though!!
Sister is taking it all in! She's going to an awesome gymnast, too!
And this little hot mess is just that!! Never ever a dull moment!! His shirt says, "I don't have a life because my sisters are gymnasts." Lots of truth in that!
Floor routine-This was right in front of us, and I was so caught up in her routine that I forgot to take pictures!
And then she wrapped things up on the bars! Great job!
I'm going to be honest here-There were so many girls competing that I truly didn't know if she would receive any medals or not! However, she ended up with four medals and was 5th overall out of lots and lots of girls!! We could not have been prouder! Don't misunderstand-I would have been just as happy if she didn't place at all, as long as she was happy and having fun! Medals make it even sweeter though!!
The Team and their medals!
The journey is even sweeter when you have sweet friends to share it with!!
Officially, she was 2nd on vault, 7th on beam, 6th on floor and 5th overall. Unofficially, she was just awesome! And because we hadn't enough fun for one day, we headed to the zoo after the meet. More on that next!!
