They placed 2nd with their military and 3rd with their novelty and they were super excited about it! They got 2 big trophies at the awards ceremony which was at about 11pm! I guess I must have given up on lugging my camera around by then but man I wish I had a pic of them with those trophies!
We ended the year with a really fun banquet where the girls got trophies and awards. Marlie's awards were Best Technique (WOW! thank you Clara) and Most Dependable (Huh?). My sweet Marlie is definitely not dependable but Ms. Clara explained it was because she could be counted on to know the dance and and to be solid at competitions. This made much more sense than what I was thinking!
