Sweet Heart Invitational in Calavaras, CA

Just got back a few hours ago from my daughters gymnastic meet in Calavaras, CA, the “Sweet Heart Invitational”. I always enjoy the trip because of the scenery…..gold country! The bad part is I’m not a morning person and we had to leave at 6:30 AM.

Anyway, Hannah did pretty good: Vault 7.60 3rd; Bar 8.60 1st; Beam 8.35 3rd; Floor 8.00 2nd; All-Around 2nd and our team, Tumble Time Gymnastics, placed first! So it was a good day for all.
