Ginger Takes Charge

Posted by mrssmythe on May 12, 2014 in Family |

Ginger’s gym has a program where the gymnasts can earn “Gym Bucks.” These are little pieces of paper that the girls receive whenever they learn a new skill, place in the top three during a conditioning run, or…well a host of other things that Ginger will not currently elaborate on because she has her nose […]
