Book Review: Winning Balance

Let me just start by saying how eye catching the cover of this book is! The instant I opened the package when it arrived I was taken in by the cover. From Shawn’s sweet face to the combination of the bright pink of the stripe and her sweater with light yellow/brown of the tall grass(…)

Thanksgiving Thankfuls ~ November 8th, 2010

Today I am thankful for Alicia.  She is one of Chloe’s coaches, as well as our neighbor.  I am thankful for her for more than the obvious reason she would first mention…..she is Chloe’s personal taxi to and from the gym, a lot! I am thankful for her because she is a support, and a(…)

Simple Woman’s Daybook FOR TODAY: May 25, 2010… Outside my window…the sun is shining brightly and the temperature on the thermometer is rising!

Seeking Positive Gymnastics

Seeking Positive Gymnastics

Recently the weight of my actions as well as others at our gym has been weighing on my mind.  Throughout Chloe’s gymnastic years I have already made my share of mistakes.  From being that parent complaining loudly enough in the lobby for other patrons to hear, as well as staff, but not being the parent(…)
