Crossing the Ohio state line
as the sun came up this morning...
"Hate early. Must kill early."
It was such a fun day. I relish the days that I get to spend with my older kids, believe it or not. I have two pretty fabulous teenagers. They actually like me and like having me along. Makes life a lot easier when I'm, like, along.
The girls did their airbrush make-up and eye make-up
after practice and while they were eating breakfast.
On the bus, however, it was time for finishing
hair and applying the "Gaga" eyes.
So, they made it to finals! A pretty hefty accomplishment in light of all this team has been through this season...trust me on that one. World Class is the cream of the crop. There are only 23 World Class teams in, well, the world. I think right now all 23 are from the US, but you get the picture. It's a pretty cool thing just to be competing. Of those 23 guards, Abby's team has placed 13th in the first two rounds and earned a spot in the final round! We did, by the way, get to see some international teams in the independent class, but our favorite was the Cinci Pride. Amazing.
The "Fantastic Four" freshmen on the World Guard team...Last year, Abby was still in middle school and, therefore, competing in the cadet class. In one short year, she has gone from the beginning level of competition to the highest level. And she deserves it. As goofy and fun as she can be, she takes it seriously and has really blossomed into a beautiful dancer and skilled performer.
