Andrea graduates!

Andrea was very busy and involved with some important causes her senior year.  She had an internship with an Autism group for her Intern-Mentor class at school, and had a lot of responsibility for several events. In the fall she helped put on a 5k run in our county to promote awareness of autism. There were lots of booth, food, music, and it was a beautiful day for people to be out around the lake.

Here is the written research she did for her project this year.

                                          Andrea happened to be right by us as she started her graduation procession.

Andrea was an outstanding high school student.  She had an awesome GPA, was president of a service club, and belonged to several Honors groups. We are very proud of her!

Ava May born on May Eight

I flew out to Denver two days before Kara's daughter, Ava May,  was born on May 8, 2015,

I stayed with Jacob, 6, and Blake, who is turning 4.  Here's the whole family of 5!

It was fun to stay with Kara and her family for two weeks.  Kara has lots of energy and made a quick recovery.
I crocheted some hats and booties for Ava, and finished a blanket for her while there.

Ava was blessed at church in the same dress that I wore (!), and that Kara wore for our blessings  Although not brilliantly white anymore, it was fun to see that dress used for three generations!

Welcome Ava May.  I know your family is very excited for a daughter and sister!
You have great parents and brothers who love you!
