Today is RENAE'S DAY!!!
I love that picture! It's like, "Who, me? Your bloggin' me today?" Of course while she is following instructions to be in the splits. Good girl, good girl.
Renae is our only Junior this year and gosh I love this girl! If you remember me talking way back in December about one of my gymnasts that dislocated her ankle, this is the girl. I will NEVER forget #1 the grossness of that ankle, #2 all your teammates running from the scene screaming like mad, and most importantly, #3 how EXTREMELY tough you were through that injury. Holy cow, she was an inspiration and a role model to our whole team with that accident.
What I like about Renae:
First and foremost, I love Renae's laugh! Renae has a laugh that can be heard and identified across the entire gym. It's super contagious so if she's-a-laughin', everyone's-a-laughin. =) Renae is super witty. Then of course she laughs after she's said something witty and it makes everyone laugh harder. She's a total sweetie.
I think Renae's greatest accomplishment had to have been last year at Sectionals on beam. We really struggled with who to put on beam for Sectionals and we decided to put Renae on the roster. Oh gosh, she couldn't have done a better routine on the floor! She really showed us what she was made of and I was so proud of her.
What makes Renae, Renae:
First of all, Renae's pretty red hair makes Renae, Renae! It's so stinking gorgeous and she can do the whole straight/curly thing.. so versatile. Anywho, Renae is so head strong. (I think it may come with that red hair) If this girl wants something, she'll go after it. Whether it's a boys, a skill, originality in her routine.. she'll go after it. =)
How I am Proud of Renae:
Well, of course I am proud of you with your whole injury thing. It hasn't gotten you down and you are SO optimistic of next year. And she has the CUTEST irsh floor routine and music. I was SO excited to see her perform it.. But I know that you will be SO important to our team next year (and maybe some this year if your healed enough to come back). I am also proud of how you've grown up over the years I've known you.
This is a fun picture. She had just come from a doctor's appointment and when I looked at her I screamed, "Oh my gosh! They had to amputate?" Dude, doesn't it seriously look like she doesn't have a foot? Whew.. praise Jesus they didn't have to take the foot. =) Love ya Girl!!!
Alrighty, blog friends of mine! Time to Praise-up cutie-head little Renae!!!
