The moments twirlers go through every week.

This weekend I have a competition here at the junior high.  I am very excited to compete, and I cannot wait to see all of my friends.  I am going to do my show routine, my strut and compete with my team.

The girl that we brought back on the team ended up quitting baton completely, so we had to bring a girl from last year’s team back.  We are still very excited, but she had to learn the whole routine in one week.  It is a little risky, but she is an amazing twirler. I know she will be fine.

I am very excited to perform my strut for the very first time; there is no other feeling like the one of showing judges something new.  There are many things in my strut that I have never seen anyone do before, and I hope I impress the judges.

I got a new costume for my show routine, and this weekend is the first time judges are going to see it.  It is white with purple details with purple butterflies. There are stones all over it, and my hair piece is a butterfly with stones on it.  This costume is from New Zealand, and it is hand made.  It is sooooo gorgeous, and I cannot wait to perform in it.

Next week I will be able to tell you haw the competition went and what people thought of my new costume.
