Keeping in Touch

Since it has been awhile, I thought I would get out a little update.  Emily is 13 now.  She went horse back riding with some friends for her birthday. She is playing club volleyball and really likes it.  She is in public school, taking AP classes and is in band and jazz band.  She is doing well.  Me, I am very busy with my bow business.  It is not making me rich by any means but it is enjoyable and helps.  I like to garden and I still run with my besties.  I still bike but not like I was, same thing with swimming.  Just not the season I guess.  My three grandsons Kru, Jax and Jet are 5, 3, and 1 and are an absolute joy - total boys but so much fun.  My daughter-in-law is a stay at home mom at the moment and doing well with it.  Tony is still an SRO officer.  Greg is working in downtown Hollywood and loves it.  Cody is doing well and works out of town a lot.  He still lives in Seminole, OK.  I visited Oklahoma earlier this year.  I got to see my dear friend Jami, Bob (Jim's brother) and Cody.  It was a quick trip to visit my stores that I see bows in.  I also visited my parents in Altus.  Anyway, that is a quick update.

Emily Made Varsity

Yeah!  Emily made the Varsity team at her local Junior High school.  This is the first year she has gone to public school so we were really excited that she made the team.  She is actually a really good volleyball player.  She played on a summer team as the lead setter and the won the whole season.  She made a lot of girl friends on the team.  It was a great experience for her.

She is still trying to get used to all the homework.  We had gone away for the weekend to do Passport to Purity and then she got sick and missed a day of school so she fell behind last week and had to work really hard to catch up.  She is much better now.  She continues to grow into a beautiful young lady that her Dad would be very proud of.  By the way, I highly recommend the Passport to Purity weekend.  It was a beautiful experience for both of us.  We went with a friend and her daughter - stayed in a nice hotel, went shopping, got a mani-pedi and ate at a nice restaurant.  We all had a great time.  God has really blessed us with great friends!

Next she wants to try out for the Jazz band at school.  She has played trombone for the past three years and did a summer band program that she loved this summer.
