Basketball camp.
All week.
I dropped her off Monday morning and felt all teary, leaving my eight-year-old all alone to fend for herself with over a hundred other kids in the High School gymnasium.

Picked her up at the end of the week, and the emotions were surfacing again. Except this time, it was elation because of her confidence.

Meet the Girls Division III One-on-One Champion!

Yeah! Congrats Emily! I hope you continue to play - that's the one thing I wish I had done in high school. Great job on bringing home the gold.

Glad she had a nice experience. Just think, when she goes off to college, she won't be homesick as she's had opportunities like that.
