Behind the scores, the wins, the falls, the joy, the tears, is my child.
I'm not sure if this moment was meant to be.
Boo taking the gold in the All Around for 9 and under.
It's not that she doesn't deserve it. She earned it, especially after not even scoring high enough to place in vault. But almost any of the girls on her team could have claimed it just as well, they are all amazing. And level 5 is hard.
Behind it all is my child taking a leap of faith.
Not the leap on the beam or the jump that got her from the low-bar to the high-bar (holding my breath) or the one that leads her dive-roll.
