An Olympic Dream...

My Little Miss Lauren has decided that she is going to the Olympics. I've written about her love of gymnastics before (My Shining Star) but watching the Olympics has taken her love of gymnastics to an obsession.

It wouldn't surprise me in the least if in 2016, the "Fam" is trekking off to whatever city is chosen (Rio de Janeiro, Tokyo, Madrid or Chicago) by the IOC. Just last week her teacher told me that she really should be in a higher class as she was being "held back" by the average-skilled kids.

We've told her that after she spends her first year of "big girl school" (first grade) getting used to a real school schedule, she can go onto the team when school is out for the summer.

In the meantime, I'm going to try to find a higher skilled class that isn't part of the team program for her to participate in so she can build her skills without having to spend 2x a week for 2hrs per session at the gym.

Yes, my Shining Star is positive that she will be the next Shawn Johnson (her idol) or Nastia Liukin - and who knows - she very well might be...
