Boxers 'n' Briefs: Gold Flinger

Ok, so now that I have inflicted the "Proud Grandpa" thing on you all, time to take a step back (or is that a pace?), and do some "proud Dad" inflicting.

While Daughter Kristi was starting to settle in with new Grandson Jordan last weekend, Daughter Juli had an Acro-Gymnastics competition. Acro-gymnastics is fascinating to watch - it combines dance and choreography with acrobatic maneuvers and balancing skills. Juli is in a "Women's age 12-14 Trio" that consists of two "bases" and a "top". Juli is a base. It is exciting and a bit scary to watch your daughter doing flips and balance contortions and flinging her partner up in the air (amazingly high, I might add), and (hopefully) catching her.

This wasn't just ANY competition last weekend, though. This was the California State Championships.

They took the Gold!

Next stop: Regionals in a few weeks. Juli's level doesn't get to go to Nationals, so this is as high as it gets. But NEXT year, she will be in a group level that CAN compete at the National level... undoubtedly, you will be hearing more about that in the future!

But for now, it was an exciting week in the Letterboxing world.

1) Stamp by stamp instructions.

2) Leaving no Stone unburned.

3) Sing along with Mr Yuk: On the Big Ox Candy Mountain...

4) Ok, so MAYBE we jumped the gun on that one...

5) Hickory Trickery Dots.

6) A great suggestion for the week minded.

7) Box to the Future.

8) We are sorry for your loss, TLP.

9) Out of sight, out of mind.

10) Putting webfoot in front of the order.

11) Traversing the plantit.

12) What a PAL!

13) She is definitely high on maintenance.

14) Saving the best for last: a wonderful group effort!

Hope you all have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend. And don't forget to take a moment to reflect on what it is all about. Happy boxing!
