Jessie, I know everyone in this room is very proud of you tonight, and that's including me! I know that you worked so hard to prepare for today and it has really paid off.
I feel so lucky because I have such an amazing older sister. You've taught me so many things. Some of the things I've learned from you are how to choreograph a dance. More on that in the video! You have taught me some of my gymnastic skills. I apologize to Laurie, our coach who is here tonight, but Jessie taught me first!
You've also taught me how to share and, with mommy and daddy's help, how to be a kind person. I hope that in a couple of years you'll help teach me what I need to learn when I become a Bat Mitzvah. Sorry Mommy, I don't mean to give you a heart attack or anything.
Jessie, I love you. Mazel Tov!!
