News of Ashley
This is Ashley's school picture for this year which I am sure she will not be too happy about when she sees I did this!! BUT - anyway, what good is a Mom if you can't frustrate your kids, right??
As the baby of the family, Ashley has struggled somewhat finding something that she does that the other two haven't. I know - sounds weird but you probably understand what I mean. Anyway, a favorite thing that Ashley does is choir - this girl loves to sing!! Several weeks ago, the high school choir competed in Jacksonville for the state competition and won so they were able to go to the National competition that is held at Bob Jones University. They left bright and early Tuesday morning and headed off to compete. They sang on Wednesday and had to wait until the awards ceremony last night at 7 before they knew the results. Our choir placed FIRST at Nationals and let me tell you, we had some very happy kids last night! I thought my eardrum would burst when I answered my cell phone! They were all sooooooo excited about winning!
I don't know if it has really hit Ashley yet or not, but she finally has done something that the other two haven't and that is win with the choir at Nationals. David and Carrie both sang in High School choir all 4 years and never went to Nationals. I was really happy for her! They are on their way home as I am typing this and I wonder how long it will take me to settle that girl down this evening so I can go to sleep?!?!?!?!
