Sarah's first gymnastics meet!

Sarah's first competition was with Gym Corner's Silver Senior Excel team.  It was the Justin Spring Invitational in Champaign, IL.  She was very happy and excited to compete. 
Her scores:
vault: 8.6
bars: 9.2
beam: 9.15 (5th place)
floor: 8.75
Before we left home. Hair done, all the proper clothes on, bag packed.

Noah was less than thrilled to be forced to attend, but he did it.  We sat through five hours of gymnastics and a three hour car ride to see Sarah perform for a total of five minutes. 

The team placed first overall! L to R: Meghan, Lauren, Brooke, Grace, Brooklyn, Sarah, Kaitlyn (coach Krista)
Sarah ended up 6th overall, and she qualified for the state meet.  She chattered excitedly all the way home.  It was close to midnight when we got home, and she slept till almost noon today.  We did an abbreviated school day and were thankful for the flexibility of homeschooling.
