I am so proud of my dd. She was offered a spot in a new group that the gym is forming called "Stars Fast-Track", where they work extra on strength, conditioning and new skills and they're planning on forming teams in a year from this group. She was one of eight chosen! But, unfortunatly we can't afford the extra expense, so we had to pass. I am so bumbed, but if we want to get our youngest started, we have to save some $$ for her. It's so aggravating that such a wonderful sport can be so expensive. I feel like we're keeping our dd from a great opportunity. In the long run she could make a team I suppose, but still. How awsome to be chosen like that. Plus, my husband thinks that part of being "chosen" is just the gym's way of getting more money out of the parents. That's not really how it is right?! lol. Anyway, thanks for letting me get a little off my chest.
