The best part for me and Victor was that Evan really worked hard and saw the results of his hard work.
This is the first year that Evan has entered quality work and received a BEST of CLASS recognition. We are very proud of him.
In addition, Evan participated in summer school at the high school and took his 9th Grade Health Class and earned a "B" grade. We are very proud of his efforts and excited for the new year.
Evan starts High School September 1st - what a great birthday present! Seminary starts September 8th - so much for sleeping in. :)
