The first week in November was Charlotte's first meet. She was so excited -- she's been working for this day for 6 months, which is a loooong time when you are 5 years old. We were up early that Saturday and at the gym by 7:30. She looked like a little gymnast in her fancy leo and hairdo.
It's hard to believe that a year ago she had never even touched a bar or a beam, and I'm just amazed at how far she has come in just 9 months.
I was so so happy with how she did after each event. I've watched her practice and I knew that she tried her best and I was so proud of her, even before the winners were announced.
And she WON.
* 1st place in Vault
*1st place in bars
*2nd place in beam
*1st place in floor
And, FIRST PLACE ALL AROUND!!!
Instead of medals for this meet, her gym did prizes and Charlotte got to pick something every time she won. She left there with her arms full of prizes -- lots of makeup. :) And, a HUGE pillow that she loves!
