Along For The Ride

We didn't get to bed until well after 12:30 a.m. but it was worth it.

Dana and Avery gave us a ride from Issaquah down to a big gymnastics meet near Vancouver Washington where Avery competed as a member of her club.

For some reason they scheduled the youngest kids last on Sunday night so it was an early morning for Avery to head out the door to school this morning, as we sit here enjoying our third - maybe fourth - cup of coffee.

We were proud grandparents. She competed on the bars, beam, floor exercise, and vault, and did well enough to end up seventh overall in her category.

The vault was something to see. Competitors get two tries and on her first try, after running full-speed, she had to stop because she was leading with the wrong foot. We were nervous in the bleachers awaiting her second try, but she nailed it and scored her first 9.0. Wow!

In awhile we'll pack up and head toward the airport and our flights to Las Vegas via San Francisco. We dropped our United Club memberships - this is our first United flight of 2013 - so the next time we check in may be in Las Vegas.
