we are in count down mode – hopefully not like NASA and have a scrub. David is back for her final year at Waldorf starting Wed. Katie and Big D start the following Wed.
David’s football Jamboree is Saturday afternoon. He’s excited and doing amazing this year – he’ll start as Offensive R tackle and Defensive Lineman. Katie’s select soccer is going well – and she (we) are hoping she can also do Mid. School Volleyball now that she is in 7th Grade. Went to her open house for her (and our district) Aspire Middle School for the Performing Arts. Staff, Teachers and kids are very excited about this new program. Will keep all posted on how it goes.
Danielle is ready to start her sophomore year – she made the JV Soccer team this week and has her first game the 8th. I am very proud of her. Danielle is also signing up to be a Lacey Police Explorer. I had done a medical explorer program in HS too – I volunteer at Deaconess in Spokane. That’s when I knew I was good at the medical stuff – but hated blood and needles – and knew I could never be and RN or MD. She will be able to use the hours as her community service credit for graduation. She has two more drives at Drivers Ed and then it’s just practicing between now and December 1.
I am going to the orientation to become a Thurston County CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate). I have asked to work with LGBTQ youth if possible and if there are none in care – then I am willing to be the voice for any foster child – especially ones who have been in our system more than a year. We’ll see how I try to fit that in with running the kids all over for practice, meetings and school.
Another summer is coming to a close – we survived – on we go
