Edgewater Classic Meet

Leah had her 2nd meet this year last Friday in Panama City. She felt much more confident going into this meet after having completed the Mobile one just the previous week.
Just some of our team's girls, kind of in the dark as they line up in the team announcements.
Warming up on bars.

During the warm up she had a pretty hard fall, but after another round through the practice turns, she was ready to compete. She completed a great routine, and is getting stronger every time I see her do it.
She was happy with her score, and it earned her a place at the end of the day.
Next up beam.
She is turning into such a poised little girl.

This was the biggest crowd we've seen at the meets we've participated in, each apparatus rotated through two groups of girls at a time, and took twice as long to finish the event. You can see by the herd of kids how large it was.
Leah was happy to medal on the Bars and in the All Around.

We were so proud of our little gymnast!

After a very long afternoon, which crept right into the night, we all went to Margaritaville to celebrate. My Mom brought the girls a new Webkinz which always brings big smiles!
Happy Sisters, their shirts say it all..."best sister ever".

Hugs to end a happy day!
I'll try and post the videos once Joe gets time to take them off of our camera.
