Busy Busy Busy

I am staying incredibly busy in my post Olympic season! I have had a ton of thank you notes to write and stuff to do before leaving on our vacation to Israel.

Today, though, I met the Governor of Wyoming in a personal visit! It was a great opportunity I received in a letter of invitation when I returned from Beijing. When I came into the Capital building today, our local TV station was waiting to interview me. It was really cool! Then I met Governor Dave Freudenthal. He presented me with a certificate and a Wyoming flag that has flown over the Capital building. Such a special gift! Gov. Freudenthal is part of the Democratic party, he made many remarks and digs at Republicans during our conversation. I decided to not be offended or contradict him since I was his guest and obligated to be respectful. I had a very engaging discussion with him about civic involvement, holding office and the issues Wyoming deals with the most. He was very encouraging to me. All in all, it was a privilege to meet and visit with the Governor.
