My cousin is in the olympics

Have you heard about the Olympic Soccer player, Heather Mitts? Well, I have. She is my cousin. 

Now, while I brag about my relations let’s get one thing straight. Even though she is my third cousin she doesn’t have a clue who I am. 
My grandma and her great-grandpa were siblings.  Heather’s dad, Donnie MItts was just at our house last year for a reunion. Nope, no Heather. I don’t think I have even met her in person. Families just aren’t as close as they used to be. 

that’s ok- I can still call her my cousin!!
