Meet Week Preparation

Jossalyn had a typical meet week experience during the practices leading up to the meet. She had an off day, a couple of okay days and one great day. She felt a little off on bars during Wednesday practice and she decided to come in to practice on Thursday just to work bars.

Travel Day and Meet Day

We had full Friday that included travel, competition and more. The morning started with parent teacher conferences for both Madalyn at Jossalyn, all before 8:00am. After that, we headed back home to get the car packed, braid Jossalyn’s hair, and get Gwen off to daycare. We were on the road about 9:45am. The drive was smooth, and we arrived in the Wesley Chapel area about 1:00pm. We stopped at Publix to pick up lunch and snacks. Then, we drove south to shop at Uptown Cheapskate – Tampa, a very cute, upscale used clothing store for teens and 20-somethings. Madalyn enjoyed it the most and while she shopped Jossalyn used a dressing room to change into her competition leotard and warm-ups. Madalyn found a very cute top and then we headed to the Wiregrass Sports Complex for the meet.
