Thank you for 100 followers!

When i started this blog in January it was not about getting followers. It was a place for me to write about my life. About being a wife, bonus mom, daughter, sister, aunt, coach, photographer, nanny, business owner. It was a way for my family to stay connected with me since i don’t love Facebook. Now I’ve made 100 new blogger buddies along with all of my family that has subscribed through email! thank you all for being a special part of my blogger journey!

State Competition

Sadly we did not takes teams to the Ohio State competition this year. Thanks to Covid they were only able to give us a 5 day notice before fees and applications were due. I didn’t feel it was fair for me to ask families for LOTS of money with no heads up. But i am super happy that 3 of my students still competed in Solo events…..oh and they killed it!

So unbelievably proud of these three! They represented the Pink Ladies Baton Corp. perfectly!

I love coaching!

What an awesome week to be a coach. On Tuesday night my private lesson students killed it. The caught new tricks like they’ve been doing them for years. I was so freaking proud of them!!!!

Finally caught her illusion toss
Finally caught her vertical 2 spin
Caught not only her illusion toss but also her cartwheel toss!!!

Thursday night we presented the girls with teamwork awards. At competition EVERY judge commented on ALL six teams how great the girls twirled together as a team. Seems simple, right!? Well I’ve been coaching for 20 years and let me tell you that’s been the hardest part of being a coach. How do you make girls bond!? Get along!? It’s hard and you would think a pandemic would only make that more difficult, right!? Well i am blessed with an amazing team of girls and they made it look so easy. I’m very proud of all of them!

Picnic in the park

Is there anything better then a picnic on the shores of Lake Erie? We ordered Berardi’s burgers and fries for carry out and we sat and ate I’m a small park in Huron, Ohio. The weather was perfect and the view was equally as perfect! It was kind of hazy out but i could still see Cedar Point just down the shore line. Won’t be long until those rides will be filled with screaming rollercoaster fanatics.

Abby really enjoyed the park. I believe she smelled every inch of the grass area. She made friends with some small children and she wanted to play with all the dogs that passed. We tried taking her in the lake but she wasn’t to sure about it. As soon as she was in she would high step and run out. To be fair the water was really cold and she’s kind of a princess, so that might have had something to do with it. I guess we will have to try again as the weather gets warmer!

American White Pelicans

So amazing to see these beauties flying over Lake Erie in Huron, Ohio. They were gorgeous and so graceful as they changed formations. They flew in a large circle several times. I didn’t have my tripod with me but i got the best shots i could. Shout out to my mom who spotted them just as we were packing up to leave!

The American white pelican’s breed in interior North American, moving south and to the coasts, as far as Central America and South America, in the winters!
