This was a pretty big year for the big girl. She started the year in homeschool which she quickly succeeded at and became exceedingly bored. She then transitioned to her new school with grace uncommon for a 12 year old.
She was nominated to the National Junior Honor Society for next year.
She actually competed in a school and then district speech competition (in front of actual PEOPLE!)
She was honored as a "high honor roll" recipient for her excellent grades.
She performed with her advanced orchestra group and the Honor Orchestra for the district. Both concerts were excellent.
What an impressive young lady we have! And - she's even fun to be around. An older man at church asked me, "is she really as nice and good as she seems?" and I had to answer, "absolutely". She is the real deal - how did we get so blessed?
