Cruz had his Pine Car Derby Race. His dad and him designed their car and he painted it in the space of a week. He named in "Lone Star". It was pretty fast!
McKay started up spring volleyball. She has really gotten her serve technique down. She has improved her vertical jump and the "three hit" skills. She had a block that the ref stopped the game to tell her congrats at how high she was above the net and that was the first "real" one of the season that he had seen. I missed coaching with her and her friends mom. Its a lot harder sitting on the sidelines letting someone else run the game.
McKay also had her fourteenth birthday! Since Jacob was out of town that week, she had a birthday week which she milked it worth everything she could. Her best friend turned 14 about 10 days later. Now they are officially able to go to stake dances together.
McKay made this picture puzzle frame for her and got several letters from friends and teachers, parents, and leaders, and had them handed out throughout the day at school. Their favorite quote was put in the top left corner. It brought tears to my eyes several times as I helped her with this. Here is the quote:
"We aren't sisters by birth,
But we knew it from the start.
Fate brought us together,
To be sisters by Heart."
I've always know we have been blessed to have been put here in Texas with so many great people. My children have grown and been so accepted. We love our community.
