My girls come to school

Addison and Jasmine came for the all-school assembly during Lutheran schools week and Addison wanted to roam around so Poppa had to grab her. She seems to be enjoying it.

Here we see Addison with godparent and 7th grade teacher, Mary Magnus.

Addison and Jasmine watch attentively from their mother, Miriam's, lap. What big eyes you have my dears!

Lutheran School Week

We have such fun during Lutheran Schools week. On Monday we celebrated being a Lutheran school student and having patriotic feelings. Lots of red, white and blue.

Tuesday was show your funny feet and we saw lots of funny feet.

Wednesday was share your faith by what you wear. Former principal, Ron Merritt, lead our chapel and encouraged us in our faith. What a great week to be a Lutheran School principal.

At times the puppets show was scary as you can tell by the looks on these little girl's faces. Hope we can talk them into attending. These girls seem very bright and could enhance the image of the school
