Cynthia graduated from SMM on May 21st. It was a wonderful evening. She looked beautiful with her Taylor Swift curls. She was also honored several times for her academic achievements. The vice-principal also announced that Cynthia has won the Ann Kalmey Christian Scholar award. The announcement spoke of many of Cynthia accomplishments as well as read some wonderful passages from her letters of recommendation. The award comes with a $500 scholarship as well! At the end of the ceremony, Cynthia and her friend Megan sang a duet. I continue to be amazed by her voice. If I can figure out how, I will load the video to the blog as well. I think one of the best parts of the night for her was her grad present - a cell phone finally!

Chris took Cynthia to Walgreens to get the necessary supplies for her 8th grade trip. She ran into several classmates that had the same idea.
Amanda did not get to play much soccer this year due to the unusual amount of rain we had this spring. She does a great job on defense!
Amanda joined the SMM tennis team this year. She really progressed alot over the season and even won her doubles match at the end of the season.
Eleanor enjoyed breakfast with her classmates. The food all consisted of words they had learned in Spanish class.
