    For Parents Anyone else's dd getting ready for States this weekend?

    This coming weekend is States for dd. Practice last night, not too bad, only had to stay an extra half hour! She seems calm and just working her skills. Not sure if she will add anything to her routines, she has been working a new floor pass and States would be a good time to try it, because...

    College letters

    My dd is a Sophomore in HS. Earlier this Fall she received a couple of “boiler plate” type letters from some colleges, basically saying “Now that you are starting to look at schools, keep us in mind. We can’t talk to you until Sept. 1 of your Junior yr. Blah, blah, blah.” We have no idea how she...

    My dd comes out of gym on Saturday and we were talking on our way home. She proceeds to tell me that bar coach told her that she is good at bars because she has long arms! She goes on to say that bars coach told her, naming names, who are really strong bars (level 9s & 10s) people because they...
