Award winning children

Jessica won a $500 scholarship from the Frank Foundation. The requirements were she had to graduate in high standing from a highschool in Central Oregon and major in nursing.

Trevor won an essay contest for his nature essay "Seeing Through a Blindfold" - the same one he presented at Terry Tempest talk in June (see mom's blog). He won $100 and his essay will be printed in the Nature of Words publication.

Jason begins working on his eagle project today in earnest as he is meeting with the director of REALMS. He plans to build a bike shed and recycling depot for the middle school he and Trevor attended (and Curtis will attend this year)

Curtis finishes summer school this week. He is in the summer swim league, perfecting his strokes and getting good exercises (he doesn't like the competitions, however).
