Mising In Action

I apologize. It's been almost a year since I have updated this blog. No excuse. Busy like everybody else. So much has happened in the last year. It might take me several posts to get caught up, but I will try to do that. Unfortunately, I accidentally washed my camera's reader card with over 1,000 pictures on it. So, I will have to rely on my memory to get caught up.

In May of last year (2012) Zoe was asked to represent the state of Illinois in a Kick Start Gymnastics Competition in Michigan. Zoe, her friends Paris and Taylar, and myself made the trip to a small town outside of Detroit. We found out about 1 month & a half later that Zoe had indeed made the National Kick Start Team. Zoe continued her Kick Start training all summer & then Paul, Zoe, & I made the trip back to Michigan in September for Zoe to particpate in the National Kick Start Training Camp with Olympic Coaches, Marvin Sharp and Kathryn Geddert. It was an awesome camp with Zoe doing new skills such as Giants on the High Bar and Yurchenko vaults. She came home very excited to start a new type of training with her coach. (More on that later!)

Here are the pictures I took of Zoe at Kick Start Camp:
