Cheer Competitions #2 and #3

I feel like these past few weeks have been a blur.  Between all three kids' sports we are constantly on the go and rarely at home.  I wouldn't trade it for the world though and I absolutely love being able to fully invest all of our time into the things they love.  

Handley had two cheer competitions back to back weekends and we all had the best time!  Her team looked AMAZING and we couldn't get over the improvement from their first competition to these.  Those kids work so hard and their determination and team work shows when they are up on the stage competing.  

After they compete they have time to hang out as a team and just have fun!  This is such a sweet group of kids and they all have gotten to be such great friends. 

Gigi and Papa came to watch and were really impressed!  

Awards were so exciting because we knew they had performed so well.  The top three teams got called up on stage and our kids got 2nd place.  We learned later they were only .05 points away from first.  SO close!!!  

We were all so very proud of them and all of their hard work paid off! 

After awards we went to dinner as a team and had at the best time.  The kids all sat together and enjoyed the evening!

Their third competition was last weekend and we had another fun day.  We have to arrive pretty early so they have time to warm up, practice, and be sure everyone is ready.  

Harper and I were there to cheer Handley on in our black and teal while the boys were at baseball. 

Handley's bestie, Olivia, even got to come watch. We were so happy to have her and her mom there to cheer her on. 

Because of a crazy 1 point deduction over a discrepancy about one of the stunts in the routine the kids ended with a 3rd place finish.  Without the deduction they would have tied for first so we still knew they did great and now they have just a few weeks left to practice before their last competition of the year!  We're sure they will bring home first!!!
