Olympics 2012 Fencing

This is probably the shortest blog ever.

But, Our friend, Susie Scanlan and Team USA won a bronze medal yesterday at London 2012 and we were there!!!!  And I can’t describe how it feels to watch someone you know; and your daughter’s Coach – work their hardest through the years and come through with a medal – and be there with the family and part of it.  Thank you, Susie – you made our week.  You are a treasure; and we will be forever grateful for your smile; your great attitude; and for being such a shining example to my own child.  If you want to see what makes an elite athlete – this family has it all tied up.  They are all great.

And to the couple who showed up out of nowhere and offered us two tickets for the evening event – I wish I had taken your address or email.  We could not have stayed without your angel appearance.
