Our Champions

Dara Howell wins gold! I love watching the Olympics...and hearing the stories that come with the athletes. As I listened to them asking Dara's mother how she felt through it all I realized every parent feels the same emotions as they watch their kids strive, stumble, succeed! Congratulations and all the best to each athlete in Sochi! 

Whether it’s the next triple flip, slalom,
Word, step or sum
We are there for them
Cheering them on
Weeping their disappointments,
Laughing with joy
At each new accomplishment
For every girl and boy
Is reaching for a pinnacle,
A goal, a prize
And they are all champions
In their parent's eyes
