8/31 History Making Celebration

Discover. Play. Build.
 Ruth Ayres has created a wonderful spot for sharing moments from your week. She even has  a page to give you all the details you need to know about sharing your own celebrations. So head  on over and see what everyone else is celebrating. 


1. Our Girl's Basketball team made the state tournament this year.  They played their first game Tuesday morning in Des Moines, about three hours from where we live.  We didn't have school so everyone could go down and cheer them on. I think most of the town did! The team has only gone to state three other times and they never won a first round game. This team did! While they lost their next game, they have nothing to be ashamed of. They play tonight for third place.  Go Cadets!

2. The best thing about these girls---they are not just athletes. They are great students, they volunteer, they are involved in choir, they're respectful, they work hard for the things they want and they are extremely supportive of each other. They are truly role models for all kids coming up behind them.

3. Also a shout out to the student section. They were awesome.

4. Celebrating school family again.  We had a family trip on Tuesday and rode down to Des Moines together. A day of laughter and cheering on the basketball team was just what I needed in the midst of the never-ending winter.  Here's most of us. We're missing "oldest child", who was taking pictures for the school and the "youngest" (who knows where he was). But it's a nice picture of the rest of us.


5. We have a school Facebook page, which celebrates everything that goes on in our district. Feel free to check it out!
