Hey Gym Dawg Fans,
I cannot believe I am already a junior, and season is right around the corner. Time has gone by so fast. Tonight was our last practice before Thanksgiving break and I think everyone could use a few days off. We have been working hard since September and tonight we had our first mock meet in front of judges. It gave us a good idea of where we are at right now.
We have had many situations in the gym where we have been put under pressure and we have been doing really well; however, this was our first time in front of judges this season. We definitely got some jitters out. Although we did not do our best, it was exciting to see that we have some depth this season, which is something that we struggled with in the last few seasons. We are definitely not where we want to be for January, but we are on our way.
I am very excited to go home to California for break and see my family. I am leaving tomorrow after our morning conditioning. My Aunt Sally is having Thanksgiving dinner, and is an amazing cook. I cannot wait! I am flying back to Washington on Friday to go to the Apple Cup and my twin sister is joining me. It is going to be so nice to spend some time with her for a few days. And I am praying for a win!
Thank you all for your support and I hope you all have a great Thanksgiving! Go Dawgs!
P.S. If you have not seen the new movie The Blind Side, go see it! It is awesome! :)
