To London!

Please indulge me in a little personal ecstasy. My son Silas–he of the broken rib two months ago–qualified for the Olympics today, winning the trials for the pair. Here’s the US Rowing story.

And here is a Youtube interview.

Anyone who has seen my dance moves might have predicted this.

It’s a very happy day in the Stafford household.

    I am proud for you and Popy and very happy for Silas. I’m always a sucker for the come-back story. I will be watching the Olympics with keen interest, especially when it comes to rowing.
