This is Erin, Astra's sister, and I am starting a blog for her (as requested by her, our sister Sara, and our mom). Hopefully she'll start posting right away and keep us all updated on her interesting and inspiring life! Maybe my mom and I will also do a few posts here and there to keep you all informed. Anyway, what better way to start her blog than to brag about her?!

Last week Astra received an amazing award during a school assembly. A lot of awards were given out, but she was the only student who received a standing ovation from the whole crowd. It was amazing. We all shed a few tears. The award Astra received was the 2008-2009 Most Inspirational Athlete. And I must say that it was well deserved! I can speak for many people when I say we are all so proud of her!
