We have been so busy with Katie this summer. She wants to attend either West Point or the Naval Academy, so she applied for and was accepted to both of their summer leadership seminars.
The summer began with her going to West Point in NY for a week:
The very next week, Katie attended the Naval Academy's summer leadership seminar in Annapolis, MD.
Next, Katie attended the American Legion's week of mock congress entitled "Girls' State" at Shippensburg University.
We were really happy to hear that first she was elected mayor of her "town," then Lieutenant Governor of her "state."
She was 2 out of 150 girls to be selected to attend "Girls Nation" in Washington,. DC. (You can go to their Facebook page if you want to learn more about it.) What an honor!
I copied some pictures from the American Legion's Girls' Nation Facebook page to share with you here. Katie is attending this week. We couldn't be more proud of and happy for her!
Between West Point, Annapolis, Shippensburg, and Washington, DC, we have spent a lot of time in the car this summer . . .
