HOMECOMEING!

We are off to take Alyssa over to some friends to swim and BBQ. Why is she going to swim when most everyone else is going to the Homecoming dance????? It's not because she was not asked. She was actually asked TWICE. It's not because she doesn't have a dress! It is not even because her parents wouldn't allow it. It's because she is not 16 for 3 more weeks and SHE decided not to go. She told Manny no and THEN came home and told Dave and I about her decision. She even got a little emotional because she really would love to go but she said no anyway. I am so proud of her. We have always tried to teach her how to think for herself and make good decisions. This week was the first time she was really tested. So you go and have a lot of fun tonight!!! We love you Alyssa!

I was so impressed with her last week in YW when she told everyone that she was asked but wouldn't be going since she wasn't 16 yet. She is such a great example to the other girls. What a hard decision for her to make. She is one AMAZING girl!!!
