De has been on the Rhythmic team as well as the Artistic Gymnastics team this year, and she just had her first rhythmic meet, in Columbus, Ohio. She competed floor and ball, and got 2nd place in each, plus 2nd place all-around. She looked great and had a wonderful time.
Ana successfully auditioned for Duquesne's Children's Festival Chorus back in December, and she had her first practice today. And I had this strange sense of deja vu. 30 years ago I was frequently sitting around during singing practices reading a book, listening to all the funny warmup noises and waiting till it was done and I could go home — and now I'm back doing the same thing. Except now I'm waiting for my daughter rather than my mother. Funny how some things come full circle.
