Bedlam and Ribbons

We survived the Cheersport Nationals in Atlanta.

Riding on the bus was a hoot.

It's always good when your daughter's behavior compares favorably to other's.

especially gratifying when other parents mention it

and really hard not to act surprised!


The girls performed abysmally.

but learning how to get along 

how to work as a team


when to get help

meeting new people

taking responsibility

are lots more important than the perfect stunt.

Our group of moms didn't take it too seriously!

Love those pics. These memories will live with you forever. My daughter spent a mother/daughter week-end at college with her daughter. She called me on her way home to tell me all about it. Take care, Paula

Was told by Nat [lurkynat] you had lost your cousin. I'm very sorry to hear that, and wish you and the family strength in coming to terms.
