Courtney is now 12! Hard to believe that she is in young women's now! Where did the last 12 years go. Courtney is a really good student. She has maintained a 4.0 GPA since the fall. She is in 7th grade math and will be in an accelerated English class next year which she had to be recommended for by her teachers. She tried out for several clubs like Odyssey of the minds and auditioned for seussical and made it. She is very busy with both of these activities. Courtney is a great big sister to her little brother Brady. She loves to sing to him and it calms him down immediately. On Brady's first night home from the hospital Courtney wanted to stay up with him and let me sleep-how sweet. I should have took her up on it! Courtney is a friend to everyone she meets. She is happy, lively and witty!

For her birthday we went and got her nails done with 5 other girls and then out for pizza and a sleep over. It was so fun.

Courtney you bring so much joy, so much fun and so much character to our home. We love you so much and so glad you are part of our family. Our family would be much more boring without you. Thanks for being YOU!
