I'm so excited!

Sort of a random post, as it has nothing to do with the girls or things that we are doing as a family, but I am going to talk a little about work. I have been working my butt off the last few weeks, preparing for try-outs for my first All-Star squad. I started working at a gymnastics center a few months ago. They had a rough year last year with the squad/coach/etc. and hired me to take over the program once the competition year was up. This is no small feat, but I was and am VERY excited about it. I decided that we need to start from scratch and take the program in a whole new direction, and focus on building a Junior Squad (ages 7-14). I was nervous, as last years coach left me with nothing. I believe the squad had dwindled to 5 girls by the time Nationals rolled around. I have been recruiting hard in my classes and in the paper, as it is not a cheap sport by any means, so it's not like girls are just lined up waiting to join the squad (not yet, anyways...give me a year or two-ha!;)

Anyways, tonight I hosted a Clinic at the gym to prep the girls from try-outs that are coming up this weekend. We had a GREAT turn-out, and I am hopeful that I will be able to build a strong squad of 16-25 girls. YAY!!!

About Me

Welcome to our life! :) Our life seems to be a constant 3 ring circus these days, but we have a lot of fun, laugh a lot and enjoy every minute of it (okay...almost every minute-haha!) Scott and I have been married for almost 9 years, and we are the parents of 2 amazing daughters, and another little one on the way. This blog is a way to keep in touch with family and friends. It also serves as a 'year book' of sorts for our family. Enjoy!!
