There's nothing like spending a special weekend with your child to create a happy Monday. Over the weekend we visited my Viking daughter at college. She was part of a demonstration by the Kendo club during the Yuki Matsuri (Japanese Snow Festival). It was the first time that we saw her in her Kendo uniform and using her shinai. There is nothing scarier than chicks with sticks.
I am very proud of her for her determination and her indomitable spirit that keeps her meeting all of the challenges that life sends her way with humor and grace.
