Magnificient Madeline

Maddie has had a wonderful school year. She turned 12 this past April and graduated from primary. She is enjoying young women and loves hanging out with her friends. Maddie was a member of Scholarship Club this year and a member of Junior Honor Society. She is also in the GATE program and had tough really tough assignments and late nights. But she was a trooper! She has adjusted to middle school beautifully. Maddie is very musical and loves being in band. She took up the french horn and religiously hauled that heavy instrument home 3-4 days per week and practiced and practiced. We attended two concerts and saw major improvement in Maddie and the Beginning Winds Band. She had an amazing band teacher. Maddie just adores her and because of her influence plans on becoming a music teacher. It's either that or an astronomer.

Maddie received two band awards this year. She was chosen by her peers as "Most Helpful" and was awarded the special director's award by her teacher for "Always being helpful, a person she can always count on, and someone who can unite the band to get the job done." We are so proud of Maddie! She had an awesome 6th grade year.

This summer Maddie is looking forward to her first year of girls camp. She has been working so hard babysitting to pay for it. She is also planning to visit her aunt and uncle and help with their baby. We love you Maddie! Maddie has grown so much this past year, in stature and maturity. She is a sweet and kind girl and a wonderful friend to everyone.

Dear Maddie ever since you were three and got over that little finger twisting temper of your ;-) I have admired the young lady that you are! You are beautiful inside and out. You shine and radiate divine nature, good works and integrity. You are going to be a very fine Young Woman!
