State!


This past weekend we had our first little road trip in our new 2005 minivan--complete with DVD player. Nice. Allison was thrilled to be in the car on our way to Bakersfield for the State gymnastics meet for Lindsey! Lindsey did so well. She competed against other 7 year olds. She got a personal best on 3 of her events. On vault, she got a 9.1 which earned her a 7th place medal and got her in the coveted "9 club" at her gym. The first place on vault was a 9.3. It is amazing how close it always is! On bars she got a 8.8, her best ever. This time the bar was set to the right height and she wasn't wearing those large grips. :) On beam she tied her sectionals score with an 8.3 and on floor she got an 8.35, a personal best even with a little fall on her landing. Her all around score was 34.55. She did amazing & we are very proud her. She has worked very hard & it has been so fun to see her grow & improve at each meet. Thanks Grandpa H. for making the 4 hour trip to come watch! I've uploaded videos of her events. Enjoy!

Hi Megan, My name is Leanne and i read your blog from Michelles A Happy heart, I hope you dont mind.
I was reading about your daughter falling of the kitchen table and it reminded myself of when my daughter fell off our table and ended up with bump on her forehead which was the size of an egg and boy did i panick but she recovered okay.
