One Proud Mama

I am one proud mama. My children amaze me each and every day, and I couldn't be more proud of who each of them are.

Today, Zyan won FIRST PLACE at the State Championships for gymnastics Level 6, making her the Bars State Champion! I am so proud of her for so many reasons. Beforehand, I wrote her a card telling her how happy I am for her, and it brought tears to my eyes just thinking about how special she is. I am proud of her not because of her ranking, but because I have seen how hard she works for her passion and how much blood, sweat, and tears it has taken her to reach these goals that seemed so far away only months ago. There are very few 11 year olds that go to school for 8 hours a day, then go to a gym and work out for another 5 hrs, then come home and begin their homework at 9pm and still manage to be at the top of their class. I don't know HOW she does it, but somehow my little firstborn kicks ass in everything she puts her mind to, and manages to teach me a few things each and every day. For that, I am one proud mama.

She's quite amazing, and I'm proud of her right along side of you. Truly though, you and hubby set one heck of an example for her to follow. She learned her perseverance and determination from you both ;)
