Sweaty palms, nausea, weak knees, upset stomach, the shakes….and those were just MOMMA’S symptoms! Even though my girl was super nervous for her very first gym meet, she rocked it out and had so much fun!
When we walked into the arena, she could not stop looking around and taking it all in – she was wide eyed and smiling! She kept jumping with nervous energy. Biggest fan, Jules, was right there with her experiencing it all, too. We left Easton home, because (A) Momma needed to concentrate, and (B) he would have been on the beam with Kennedy.
I have been through t-ball games, dance recitals, school plays, and swim meets. This was BY FAR the most nerve-wracking performance to watch. I don’t know if it was the people or the judges…..I just knew how much she loves gymnastics and how hard she works. I could not even eat! Remind me to hide a flask in my purse next meet (kidding). She definitely eased my nerves with every event. She became more and more comfortable as the meet went on.
The biggest challenge of the entire day was my camera – grrrr. Thank goodness I was prepared with video camera backup – ya’ll know how I like my action shots, though! I’ll get my pictures next meet!
She made us so proud on all of her events.

Good job, Love Bug!
