My golden girl

My daughter Elizabeth had a tough decision to make when selected to participate in USA Games as part of Team Virginia – walk in her high school graduation ceremony or go for the gold in New Jersey. We told her the choice was hers. I am so glad she chose to go for gold and she got it in 100 backstroke! It was a spectacular week in New Jersey – thanks Special Olympics!
