The most exciting thing that happened this week was a volleyball tournament. Abby played in a 14 and under tournament. They won! Abby was also chosen as one of two MVP’s for her team!
The team won a trophy, and Abby received this dog tag. It has a volleyball in a star on the front, and the tournament name and info on the back. Pretty cool! The team plays again next week in the state tournament! Both Hannah and Abby will play in those games. Go Trailblazers!!
Yes, among volleyball practices, games, church services, and volunteering at church, schoolwork did get done! Phew! I will certainly be glad for slower times!
Calen and Hannah are working towards graduation. One of the good things about homeschooling is not having to work on the public school schedule. When they finish the work, they will graduate. So it’s entirely up to them. They both will graduate sometime this year, though. So I’ll be stocking up on graduation party supplies when they go on sale. We don’t participate in a group graduation, so far we’ve held graduations here in our house with invited guests. Then a party. My older daughter combined her graduation and 18th birthday into one party. I did a big cake half graduation and half birthday. That was fun.
It’s hard to believe that by the end of the year, I’ll only have two students left!
