"During my competitive years, I practiced everyday, except for Sunday, had lessons weekly and went to ballet practice every week.  I had fun, but worked and gave up some other everyday activities.   I cannot thank my family enough for all they gave me and did for me. I accomplished so much and achieved so many wonderful goals. I traveled to many places and met a substantial amount of baton twirling friends.  The experiences I had growing up will never be forgotten.  I love to be able to give the girls the same experience that I had when growing up."  - Missie
