The kidlets last competition this year was on the weekend, in Oshawa. She did so awesome!

1st place Vault

2nd place Bars

3rd place Floor

7th place Beam

1st place Over-All

Want to know what is really amazing. She woke up that morning with a pounding headache, fever and throwing-up. She was a wreck but cried when we said that she might not be able to compete. She napped all morning and we finally got the fever down. She perked up and we decided to let her go.

It's over an hour drive there and when we arrived she was spiraling downhill again. Took another Tylenol and she sat on my lap and snuggled. At that point, she was changing her mind. I told her to go a head and do her warm up and see how she felt after that. Hoping that might take her mind off how she felt. It worked and once the adrenaline started pumping she did fine. Although she looked green/gray and ready to hurl when the judges weren't looking.

She crashed in the car on the way home and slept right through till late the next day. I still can't believe that she got through it all feeling the way she did. Man, she is one tough kid.
