Ok Devan had her first meet today — didn’t take the camera (shock). It was a critique meet and they didn’t actually post scores, although they did get some. They really picked apart the girls routines. I don’t think anyone in the entire meet got higher than an 8 on anything. They were REALLY picky. Devan got 7.5 on all events even falling on beam and bars. Her vault was GREAT too, and her floor routine had some minor things (so we thought) — she was so so about it all. But this meet they REALLY score low, and it was a chance for the girls and the judges to get started for the season. Next weekend the meet is in Kingman. That is a totally fun meet and you’ll be sure to see photos from that one. Our team is doing AWESOME and is going to have a really great season. We have 4 meets in a row and then 2 weeks off and then our home meet. Devan is going to do awesome and hopefully can get stronger and move on up. Her goal is to move up to optionals — I think she will really shine when she reaches that goal. We’re doing all we can to get her there. She’d spend each empty second in the gym if she could. And now that Nathan is on Team I think we’ll just pitch a tent there. Well gotta run, getting the kids to bed for another week of fun and excitement!!!
