Ryan had her first day of Gold practice today. She is in the bronze group and is one of the youngest, if not the youngest. There are kids up to about age 8 in this grouping. I wish I caught on video Ryan looking up at the girl before her on the first jump in...she was as tall as Jared and the look on her face was priceless. She stayed with the group the entire time and at the end was still going strong. EVERY time we caught her eye she gave us a HUGE grin, it was so blasted cute! Coach Karen officially deemed her "Ryan Pink" because there is another Ryan (a boy) that kept getting called out. Jared is still known by Coach K as "Jared green" even though he switched to blue goggles and the other Jared moved away...it's just a coach thing. It's kind of an honor and RyRy didn't know what to think of it. She'll get used to it. :) Ryan chose the music for her video, it is actually quite appropriate!
