Lauren is in 7th grade at Oaks Christian Middle School in Westlake Village, CA. It's a BIG change for her because she's been home schooled since first grade, but she likes it a lot. She LOVES all her teachers. History and English are the two classes she enjoys most.
Recently her entire 7th grade class spent a week at Hume Lake Christian Camp, nestled in the California Sequoias. Hume is such a special place! Our family has lots of wonderful memories of many trips there. For Lauren it was especially fun because it gave her the opportunity to bond with and continue to make new friends. A couple of the things she especially had a blast doing were canoeing and the ropes course. Her cabin was at the top of a hill, exactly 183 steps from the bottom to the top! She became intimately acquainted with each one of them, up and down, every day. Well, it was one way to stay in shape for her school swim team and AYSO soccer team! She scored the first goal of the year for soccer. This is one athletic young lady!
Lauren likes to cook and makes a very yummy mac 'n cheese - one of Grandma's favorites!
I love to talk with Lauren on the phone. She's always very chatty and has lots to say!
Happy birthday, Sweetie! Papa and I love you!
"Teach me your way, O Lord, and I will walk in your truth; give me an undivided heart, that I may fear your name."
Lauren, this Bible verse is one of my favorites - given to you in LOVE!
