Life is busy and it's about to get busier......

Jake Dalton Meet and Greet Monday August 13th at Gymnastics Nevada 5-8pm

 Life is always busy in the Lynch house.  It's about to get a whole lot busier.  Football season is upon us, as is school approaching.   Stevi's competition cheer conditioning is underway, we just got a partial schedule, including our fundraising and parent volunteer schedule, and Jay got a job in Palo Alto that starts September 1st.  Originally we thought it was a 4 year job, turns out it will be 10 years, but with the benefits and strength of the union in the Bay area, as well as additional benefits and a steady paycheck, it is too good to pass up.  He will be looking for a place to live in Half Moon Bay, much prettier area with the same price as Palo Alto, better weather and only a 30 minute drive.  Depending on how Stevi does here in school and with her sports, she and I plan to stay until she finishes school, when she's off to college, it looks like I may have a move in my future, for now, we will continue to work on paying bills down, and getting Stevi where she needs to be, whether it be work, school, drivers ed, cheer coaching SYFL, competition conditioning or competitions.  I will be on my own to add this to my full time work schedule, thank God my clients are amazing and understand when I need to move my schedule around to accommodate my daughters busy life, but in 3 months and 3 weeks, she will be driving.......after driving kids around for 26 years I can't wait! I just hope we can figure out a way to get her a car because she will definitely need one......Actually, I NEED her to have one.  We will at this point more than likely be only getting to the Bay area occasionally because of her schedule.  I was hoping to be able to take turns visiting since Jay's work is so physical, I hate to have him do all the traveling, besides, who wouldn't want to spend their weekends on the beach in 60 degree weather this time of year!
Stevi's new home for a year or more!
I will be updating her competition schedule and fundraising events as often as I can.  The soonest for us is the SYFL Experience on August 11th.  We have to be there 7 am (Stevi the night before) to set up the booth and possibly until 10 pm at night........If you are there , come say "Hi" to us in the Xtreme Cheer Booth and see what our gym has to offer your athlete.  Also the following Monday August 13th there will be a meet and greet with Olympian Jake Dalton, who comes from Gymnastics Nevada.  The Xtreme Cheer team and parents will be selling hot dogs, chips, cookies and soda as a fundraiser  ($5 for a meal) while Jake signs autographs and take photos with everyone attending.  It is amazing that he is offering his time to do this the day after he will be flying in from London, then he is off on tour with the rest of the USA team for the next year.  Hope to see you all there, Jay, Stevi and I will be there working from 6:30-8pm, so please come and say "Hi" while you are there!

And lastly....... I am on vacation this week!  Everyone keeps asking me where I am going.......Oh my Gosh..... I am going to be so busy! I am going to drivers ed Mon-Thurs. SYFL Cheer practice Mon-Sat.....Xtreme Cheer Monday and Thurs......And probably to a wide assortment of fun (Stevi) friend activities.....Yup, that is my vacation..staycation I should say....I woke up today..my first day of vacation, made myself an iced coffee, then went outside for 2 hours and worked in the yard and have finished laundry, so I get to sit and relax.....here on the computer, as I try to adjust our weekly schedule and try to figure out if I will be able to work evenings at all before November when Stevi is officially behind the wheel............so relaxing........
