It has been quite the year for Emma. She has physically changed a lot in my opinion. She has no more little girl look to her. I just see a young woman when I look at her and I'm not sure I like that. I am so very proud of who she is and who I see her becoming, but it's still hard. She is my baby and she is almost 13!

Emma completed her first year as a NCL Wildflower member. She completed the required hours and then some, but not too many. It was a true challenge because of her gymnastic schedule. However, she dedicated time and effort to more than 10 charities. She completed more than 50 hours. Her favorite place to volunteer was the Atria, which is an assisted living facility. Mine too and it makes me happy to know that we can share this journey together.
Finally, Emma did so well at school. She was inducted into the National Junior Honor Society in April and she finished 7th grade with all A's. She struggled all year in math and somehow found the time to go to tutoring when offered. She worked hard and had a 90 for the year. Honestly, that is huge. She hates math, but she had a great teacher and that made all the difference. This is the second year she earned all A's in her pre-AP classes. She has already decided she wants to leave Strack next year having accomplished that again. You go girl!
