omaha, ne
Emily had a great meet especially on bars.
She probably did the best bar routine of her life and scored a 9.25 and scored the highest out of all level 5s:) at this meet.
Beam she was more wobbly than the last meet but still scored an 8.95.
Floor looked awesome... I thought better than last time but we lost a tenth and she got a 8.75. Unfortunately we had some technical difficulties recording it so I am trying to piece the pieces that we did get together.
Vault... I thought it was a good vault but they were tough tough tough on vault and she got an 8.05.
Overall they didn't award individual ribbons at our home meet and only did the AA. Emily placed 1st in the AA with a 35.0 for 9 year olds.
I sat in awee over her bars though all night. She has made leaps and bounds on bars this past week with staying tighter and casting higher and being more agressive on bars in general:)

Okay Madi....
Madi had a great first meet that you would think she has been competing forever already.
We got 1st rotation on beam and Madi got to go first out of our 11 level 3s. She stuck everything and did the bonus skill of the level 4 dismount instead of a level 3 dismount and stuck it even:) She scored an amazing 9.5 .... I sat there in aweee... Madi ended up with the 2nd highest beam score out of all 27 level 3s.
Then she was off to floor:) She didn't forget her routine and made all her skills. She ended up with a 9.1.
Vault was next and well that is Madi's worst event... She doesn't get the run and jump on the board thing so they had her do a dive roll instead of doing the level 4 vault.
She got a 7.4.
Then we went to bars and Madi did great. She was spotted for her stride circle but her form was good:)
Madi got a 8.8 on bars today.
Madi ended up taking 10th out of 27 level 3s. They didn't age them out... So Madi stood among girls who were anywhere from 5-13. There were only 8 5-7 year olds so all and all Madi did great:)
I am impressed with how Madi is on form at her age. I really am.
