First Cinderella Pageant as a Mini Miss



Etta competed as a Miniature Miss for the first time at a Cinderella pageant.  I possibly gave her some bad advice before the competition and I kick myself now.  I told her not to talk too much in the interview since she likes to talk a lot now!  She ended up winning Beauty which is basically second place and I couldn't have asked her to have done any better (from what I saw).  Her talent was amazing and her modeling was perfect.  Another little girl that had a great dance routine ended up winning the overall title. 
Etta will be helping out and performing again for the Cinderella pageant I'm directing this November 9th at the Texas Station.  Hoping for a good turn out!

October 5th Gymnastics Meet

I've taken a hiatus from blogging and need to get back to it.  I got a new phone and have been learning how to take video and photo from it and some how getting it to the computer and my blog.  It's a learning process.
Etta had her second Xcel Bronze gym meet of the season.  The first one did not got well at all and those videos will not be seen by anyone!  She was determined to do better at this meet and she achieved a lot of goals.
Etta did an excellent bar routine and scored a personal high of 9.4!

Her vaults just aren't good enough to score high.  She got an 8.85 for both vaults.

Etta had a great floor routine and scored another personal best with a 9.275!

 
Etta had a great beam routine, probably one of her best executed beam routines and was surprised she only got an 8.85.  Unfortunately I couldn't get close enough to record that one.  She got 5th place in the All Around out of 10 girls but I was so happy with her two personal bests.  Plus, she was only .35 points away from the first place winner.  We have two weeks until her next meet.
