I had the best time in Florida with my team!! It was an emotional, crazy, wild, and fun trip! We had many ups and downs but overall the trip was so amazing and I would do it all over again!

I'm so proud of my team and all of their accomplishments! Throughout the year, we have grown to become a super bonded team. Though we wanted first place and the title of national champion, we realized how much more important it was to be grateful for the placement that was given to us. Through our low moments, we became even more close and bonded... which is what a team is all about. I'm so happy and proud to be apart of my wonderful team and I'm so sad that the season is coming to an end! I can't wait to go back to Florida in a month!

I hope that everyone has an amazing week!

XOXO,

Grace
