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.

This is Emily's testimony she gave at the 6th grade graduation ceremony.  She speaks of the trials of going through losing her Dad and how she got through them.  She did a great job and I am so proud of her.

I need to catch up on this blog once again but here is some recent news.  This was on Emily's Club Volleyball's website:

Every girl worked so hard and they worked as a team to come out and win 4 big matches! Coach Erin couldn't be more proud of her girls and thanks all her supportive parents.
