Her Face = Priceless

Last Friday, yes on Lucas' birthday, Kayla had a regional archery tournament in Columbia, SC.

Kayla's highest score was the 151 she got in Worlds last summer in Orlando. So far this season she hasn't been close to that score. Her best has been a 103.

I don't know what it was for this tournament, but she was on fire! She shot her best score yet - blowing away her 151. She came away from Regionals with a 165! She did so great with her shots; it was exciting to watch her.

After one particular round she was especially pleased with herself. She was excited to end that round with a 9 (she might have thought it was a 10; sometimes it's hard to tell until they go to the target to score their round) but we're all really excited for her when she gets that arrow in yellow!

Anyway, she was pumped coming back from the line and threw in a fist pump to herself. I'm so glad I caught this picture of her. Pure joy. Pure excitement. Elation. Self-confidence. Pride.

That's her coach behind her - just as happy for her as she was ... her excitement can get contagious!

Look at her face!

This was her "yes!" before the above picture, but of course someone waked right in front of me as I was taking the picture!

 Her coach is the best! He's so great with all the kids.
