Another proud mommy moment

Last weekend Lauren and her University of Toronto Rowing Team traveled to Boston to compete in the Head of the Charles races (this is a major international event). Her "four" won gold!! This is the first time that UofT has won at this event -- and many other UofT competitors came in the top 3 also. Their coach, Rob Watering is a fantastic coach and has done so much for the team. So congrats to all of them!
This is a closeup of the medal pictured above -- I think that it is beautiful and I'd like to frame it for Lauren. (It's about 2 1/2 inches across)
This weekend they are at the Ontario University Championships. Lauren won bronze in her double and her coxed four! Great work, girls! Next weekend are the Nationals. They are Montreal -- I'll keep you posted!

Ohhhhh!!!! That is SUCH splendid news on so many fronts. Firstly, your beautiful, talented daughter. Secondly, UofT team GO GIRLS, and last but not least the prestigious race! This is utterly fantastic. To be framed indeed. Congratulations to all involved. Great work.
