Sometimes we need to just celebrate the simple things in education rather than pointing out the big bad things, so, on that note I want to share something personal.
My now 7 year old daughter told us almost a year and half ago that she was going to the Olympics for gymnastics. As parents, we sometimes do not realize how determined kids can be, myself included. Yesterday, she made the official team, and this particular team has been a feeder for various US national gymnasts.
It looks like she is one step closer to the Olympics and I am filled with pride about her!
