Last weekend, Jackie Joyner-Kersee watched the opening ceremonies of the Winter Olympics in Sochi from her West St. Louis County home with a smile on her face. Come to think of it, there isn't much of anything she does without a smile on her face! And why not?

She was named by Sports Illustrated as the Greatest Female Athlete of the 20th Century.

It’s official: I am completely submerged in the teenage years. Due to a family-planning strategy that revolved around white wine and Cardinal home games, Cranky, Whiny, and Punch are now 16, 15 and 13, respectively. And there's lots of fun stuff happening: We have a licensed driver, a permit driver and a 13-year-old who likes to back my car out of our driveway ‘for practice.’ I have to say it’s strange imagining the little girl who once dove—yes, dove—off the top of a slide ("because it was faster") behind the wheel of a car.
