Brandi received an invitation this fall to be inducted into the junior national honor society. Membership to the national honor society is based on scholarship, leadership, service, character and citizenship. So to remain in the NHS she will be expected to maintain a high GPA and basically behave herself and show outstanding leadership!
It was a pretty neat ceremony, and hopefully now that she's been inducted into the NJHS it will be a motivator to continue to work hard and keep her grades up through high school so that she can remain part of the Honor Society.
We are very proud of you Brandi!
6 of the kids that made the NJHS are members of Brandi's club volleyball team. With the combined brain power they have on that team they should be able to figure out rotations! :)

Winter Ball

Winter Ball is the first formal for the year. Ashley asked Kooper Blair. She went and got a new dress and some crazy crazy high heels and got all dolled up. I was amazed at the amount of effort her and her friends put into this night....way more time and effort went into getting ready for this event than what I put into getting ready for my wedding! They spent most of the day at Katie Littles house getting ready and then they kind of split up and went their separate ways as Ashley went to Cedars with Koopers friends and a lot of her friends went together to Jenna's house. They has so much fun getting all dressed up and ready!

Ashley and Kampbell.....they're a special kind of special.

Could they just get along already??!! Ashley and Justin....fight like cats and dogs. Ashley like to tell him she's going to marry him one day, at which he promptly gets extremely disgusted. And around and around they go. She waxes his unibrow.....he screeches like a girl. She bugs him one to many times and he tackles her to the ground. It really is fun to watch. They've had that love hate relationship since they were babies:)

FFA fundraiser

The FFA alumni is always looking for ways to raise money to help support the kids via fair 'add-ons' or scholarships. One of the ways we do this is by having a Christmas Wreath fundraiser every December. A lot of work but generally very successful!

School Volleyball

Last year of middle school sports! We were anxious to see the change in the skill level of the girls who have been playing club ball. All the girls that were on our club team made 'A' squad. You could definitely see that they had some more experience! It was nice to start to see all that extra time and effort finally paying off.
