CC, The Family Gymnast

with 5 comments


Sisi the Family Gymnast 1

Our grand-daughter, CC, was 13.  Of course we still think she is a movie star.

.

Her Dad, Kushi, is with her in the last picture. Born in Israel, his family are Kurdish Jews. They were born in a village in northeastern Iran where ancient Aramaic is still spoken. CC’s Mom was born in Lebanon of a German Mom and an American Dad. CC’s proper name  means “wild rose” in Kurdish.

.

She lives in Oakland, California. CC is our beautiful vision of a global village.

  1. I love what you wrote “of course we think she is a movie star”. You captured the essence of her with lovely photos of a beautiful young lady. I also love “our beautiful vision of a global village.”

  3. Some incredible captures of her performing-but the expressions while she waited for her results-were marvelous.
