Yeah Ethan!! He was the level 10 all-around champion at the Mini-hops Invitational Gymanstic’s meet last night at Hamline University in St. Paul. He is always at his best at the evening meets (not a morning person). He obviously did well in all six events, to have come out on top in the all-around. Way to go Ethan!
Hannah is doing okay. For any of you who might be wondering, as I was when I went to bed last night, while the tsunami warning did impact her area of Japan, it was predicted to be much stronger on the other side of the country. In the end, it didn’t cause as much damage as feared. My heart goes out to all of the Rotary parents who have children in Chile this year (which was, incidentally, Hannah’s top choice for her exchange year, but she didn’t get this top choice). I know how scared I was just to learn of the tsunami warning for Japan. I also learned that there was an earthquake (6.9) in Okinawa, Japan on Saturday. This earthquake also triggered a tsunami warning for Japan. Never before have I so appreciated the term “global community.” Natural disasters do not happen in isolation, they impact all of us.
