27/52 – Getting ready in make up and costume before your year end gymnastics show, “Gym Fest”.
We were so proud of you choosing to change clubs: not one of your friends tested into this program and
you’re not usually one to try new things alone. But it’s been so great for you. You’ve seen your strength
and technical skills increase ten fold. And we’ve seen your confidence soar.
Later tonight you were awarded with the trophy for “Overall Achievement” in your group. All in all, the year’s changes and successes are definitely something to celebrate!
26/52 – Your dad and I first met at Canada’s Wonderland in 1993. We were students, working spring and fall weekends and all summer long to pay for university. Not much has changed over the years. Oh sure, there are a ton of new rides and the former farm area that used to surround it is now crammed full of houses and box stores. But “wonder mountain” and the “floral flag” still greet you when you enter, the crowds remain, and funnel cakes are still worth the line up. And then too, the excitement of children – especially you three – is contagious. Such a fun day seeing it through your eyes.
25/52 – An impromptu visit to the lake for a short 24 hour visit. Managed to get the boat in, go for a boat ride to the marina for ice cream, fish for pike and toast some marshmallows. I call that a successful 24 hours!
