yes thats right. i am a state champion. well more the lassiter gymnastics team is, but regardless. aubrey, chesa, and i all joined dive this year as a way to get state rings. well, we didnt make it to state for dive, but we did make it to state for gymnastics and we won!! it was an unforgettable experience. this year, for the first time ever, we got to ride to state in a limo.
we got out of school at 12 o'clock and rode around for a good 4 hours. it was great. we stopped for lunch in centennial olympic park and played in the fountains and just were our ridiculous selves. being gymnasts, you can't really take us anywhere.
we made quite the entrance, especially when the limo broke down on the way into westminster.
we started off on beam where everyone fell. we beat up on ourselves a bit and everyone's spirit was a little down. we had a pretty solid floor, but we still didnt think it was enough to cover beam. then on vault we had a few pretty bad falls and we'd almost given up hope. but we made it to bars and candace, nina, and chesa kicked butt! chesa ended up getting 1st and nina 2nd! we were really nervous and didnt ask about anyone else's scores or tell anyone what we'd gotten. we wanted it to be a surprise, and oh my it was.
yes, we were crying.
my bar champion.
you girls are the best team i could have ever asked for. thank you for giving me the season of my dreams. i love you all so so much.
