Dedication

WIth the help of rest and strengthening exercises, she is recovering from her injuries. Her dedication and love of the sport of gymnastics is evident.

Not ready to go home

Here she stood, after her gymnastics class ended, not ready for the excitement to end, and clearly not ready to go home. Jean_H_de_Buren_gymnastics_6255She and I stayed for another hour to watch the team practice, both of us admiring the talent and grace of the gymnasts. As we watched, we talked, shared, laughed, and dreamed together.

These moments of connection are precious; I realized that I was not ready to go home either.
