Roy Gym Meet

Kade had an early meet in Roy today and the weather was bad so last night we stayed with Gary and Jasha in North Salt Lake.  It was a fun little "date" for Kade and I.  While we were there Jasha's neighborhood was throwing her a baby shower so I was able to attend that.  It was so fun to hang out with them.  
Mr. Competition had a rough time at this meet.  He received an uncontested 1st place in floor which helped ease the pain a little.  When he was on trampoline he got a little extra bounce after a flip and it shot him backward into the padding around the edge of the trampoline.  He was heartbroken.  I wish we would have talked about what to do in that scenario so he would have realized it was a possibility.  As it was he didn't know what to do but just hop off and cry-- poor kid.  I felt bad too because they have the gymnasts down on the lower floor and the parents up in the rafters.  I couldn't be there to comfort him but his coach hugged him for me.  He was pretty sad about it, which for Kade means he sulked and sulked.  He just wants to win so bad he can't deal with messing up.  It's going to be hard but I'm sure by the end of the season he will be better equipped emotionally to handle disappointment and therefor be more resilient.   After the meet Kade and I stopped in to visit Kelby and Sammy.  Her parents live in Roy and they are staying with them for a while so they can help them with their new little guy, Eli.  We were so excited to see him for the first time. What a cutie!  Kade and I had a busy weekend but it was a lot of fun to spend some one on one time with him.
Here were his results:
Double mini level 5 age 9-10:  score 53.3 placed 6th (1st pass 28.5 2nd pass 24.8)
Trampoline level 5 age 9-10: score 1.6 placed 5th (fell off and quit)
Floor level 4 age 9-10: score 56.9 placed 1st (1st pass 28.7 2nd pass 28.2)
