For those that know me well, you know that I LOVE the sport of Drill Team!! It's a crazy sport full of high emotions, drama, it can be time consuming, and very difficult. Yet I still love it. It's a sport that is completely dependant on someones opinion. Some like you others don't. Some days you win and others, you lose. That's exactly what happened this past Tuesday at our Region competition. We lost. I still really don't know why. My girls were on FIRE!! They performed their absolute best. Yet we were still defeated. Saddest day ever. Lots of shock and tears came from all. I honestly can say and truly do feel that my team deserves to be going to state. However that wasn't the out come and I wasn't there judge. If I had been for sure a 1st place in kick :)

Here are some highlights from our season:
Jordan Invitational- 2nd hip hop, 5th in dance, 3rd in kick Utah Valley Classic- 4th in kick (on a side note this was the competition where we scored above Lone peak in both kick and military) Murray Classic- 4th in military & 3rd in kick Region- 4th in kick
I tried to attach a video of the performances but, it wasn't up loading. Been trying for the past 4 hours. Oh well.
Yet again, I have failed at updating my blog. I was doing so good. Oh well. Anyhow here's a run down of what's happened since Christmas.
A few days before New Years we went up to Idaho to visit Barry's mom and sister. We had a great visit and Andrew loved grandma's doggies. The only down side to the trip was our little Brooky got sick that night we were up ALL NIGHT in a hotel room with a crabby baby with a fever. Ended up she had an ear infection and croup. No way to ring in the new year.
January 3rd started the beginning of school again. What do you know, first day 7:30 in the morning and I injure myself demonstrating a dance move. First dance injury EVER! Then the next day, I slipped on ice and used my bad leg to stop the fall from occurring. AND, then, the following Monday, I slipped on the ice AGAIN and landed flat on my back. 2011 is just not my year. However, things have gotten better since then and I am just waiting to go to the ortho to see exactly what the deal is. The trainer at school seems to think its a torn meniscus but who knows.
Drill has been amazing! We have Region on Tuesday and should do really well!! My team has been on FIRE this year. The girls are super talented and the parents are super supportive. Its been fantastic to have so much support. I can hardly wait for Tuesday to see how it all ends up. If you need something to do that evening, come on by Lone Peak High School at 5pm. Our Region is definitely the most talented in the state!
Stay tuned for an update to see how it all ends up!!
Here are some fun random pics of the kids from this past winter.
