Gold medal

That's how the gold medal looks like:

Pure happiness

It is our 5th day in Colorado at Midwestern Synchronized Skating Sectional Championships. The day started at 4am with a shower for me, nagged breakfast for Lila, than getting into the competition dress, making the hair, sewing the the hair, the headpiece and the bow in place and getting to the rink. 7am the preliminary flight began. Wisconsin Edge skated 5th and we knew they had a great solid skate. They did whatever they could and now we just had to wait and see how other team did. After all 9 teams had skated and some nervous waiting time we got the results - 1st place. It was a terrific ending of the season. For preliminary level it is the highest competition they can be in. The team parents are so proud of the girls. Go Edge!

That's how the champions have fun - enjoying the hot tub with snow covered Colorado mountains in the background.
