A little over a year ago, I had a conversation with two of our grand sisters who were competition twirlers. Their mom was a National Champion baton twirler and it was natural that the girls would go that path. They were very good twirlers, as well. They had already proven that they were winners. In our conversation, I asked them to tell me their top three activities that they enjoyed the most. Neither one mentioned twirling. They shared with their mom and I know she was heartbroken. After several months of talking it through, they decided to focus on their competition dance. Both girls have shown great improvement and are gifted dancers. Success!!!
