Disclaimer- I'm still catching up! This post was from last year, even though we just finished the pre state meet this year too. Ha. I'm trying not to confuse myself.
Tumbling continued with the pre state meet in Webster City. Kerigan got 4th place.
These girls were getting excited for the state meet!
I love this sweet girl so much!
Since WC is close to Ga Ga, she came to surprise us!
A couple weekends later, the state meet was in our old town- so we got to see our friends!
Kerigan was having fun reading to everyone! Ha!
Piper loved listening to her and wanted her to read all night!
We were going to spend the night with our friends, but sweet Payton ended the night with a fever so we thought we better stay in a hotel. With all the tumblers in town, there was only one room left in the whole town- with a king size bed. Do you think there's any room for me in that bed!? Ha ha.
The next morning here she is ready to go! She wanted a picture by the sign.
Sweet Rylee and Kerigan
Doing her thing
I'm still in disbelief that she goes out there in front of all those people, with no fear.
And competes in front of a table of judges and she's not even nervous! She just loves this sport.
It has been so fun getting to be on the same team and level as Rylee (she's on the 4). We have gotten to know their family and love hanging out with them! Then we had to laugh because I stumbled across a few old pictures with Rylee in them from when Kerigan tumbled at her old gym!
They competed with each other then, too, but we just didn't know each other! Such a small world. This was the year before the first picture.
We have a national qualifier!
And her fan club
She was so excited!
We had to grab a family pic!
We went out to celebrate at our favorite ice cream place, Ev's
Angie and Parker were on a walk so they stopped by to congratulate her!
Proud big brother
Kerigan loved pushing Parker around in the stroller
Proud of my girl!
So on the way home from the meet, we stopped and got this girl her first bat. Makes sense, right? Ha!
She joined T-ball for the very first time (you know, since dance and tumbling wasn't enough!)
She loved playing and we loved watching her! She didn't even have to use the T very often because she was able to hit the ball from the coach pitching!
She also may have loved playing because a certain boy was on her team! Yes, it's already happening. Kindergarten and boy crazy. This boy's dad was the coach and so he got to place the names inside the dugout for the order they hit and where they sat and he always put Kerigan right next to himself!
She also spent some time at the field watching her brother play!
I loved watching my little man, too!
One night after their games I had to take their pictures by this bat statue at the splash pad in the park.
Kerigan got to use her cousin Evelyn's first glove, which was pretty special!
A side by side of my little baseball players!
After one of her games we went for pizza and she lost a tooth! She was so excited about that!
More to come soon!
