They called this a 'mini olympics' and had the younger kids go first. Everyone was figuring on this only taking an hour and a half but boy were they wrong! We were there for just over THREE hours! Alena did really well waiting for the next round and her turn. Christian also did surprisingly well for having to sit there with nothing to do the whole time. He even ended up falling asleep!
|You have to look at her reflection in the mirror to see her here.|
She got fourth overall and third in the bar and vault.
And here is what Christian ended up doing. :)
With as many meltdowns and "I don't want to do it!" as she had, she got through it and I'm proud of her. She loved the medal and ribbons she got, but unfortunately, it wasn't enough to get her hyped up about competing again. We really want her to get over this fear of being in front of people because it is only going to hold her back.
