First Cheer Competition and First Baseball Game

What a crazy couple of weeks it has been!  Robby is in Japan for work right now (crazy!!!) so I've been super busy here at home with him gone.  However, before he left we got to squeeze in a fun filled weekend.  Handley had her first cheer competition, Hudson had his first spring baseball game of the season and sweet Harper agreed to miss her first soccer game so she could be with us for all of that.

Handley's competition was in Tennessee so we made our way up on Friday night.  We checked into our hotel late that night and had a 5AM wake-up call the next morning.  The girls and I went early and the boys came a little later that morning.

Handley was so excited and nervous and anxious and I shared all her emotions.  She has been working so hard with her team and this was what they had been preparing for.  She looked so cute in her uniform and the team was ready.

They competed very early and did really well for their first competition. I think it was a learning experience for all of them because most of them had never done competition cheer before.

There were a few bobbles and some mistakes here and there, but overall they did great for their first completion and ended up with a 2nd place finish.

Handley LOVED every second of the day.  She loved competing and she loved hanging out with her cheer friends after while waiting on awards.  It was safe to say she was hooked.

After her awards we were on our way back to GA for Hudson's first baseball game of the season.  I had a feeling he would do well after seeing him in practice these past few weeks and I was right!  He had amazing hits, great fielding and had the best time playing.  Their team didn't win, but he played his heart out and was awarded the first game ball!  He was so proud and we were so proud of him.
