Very blessed; very proud

We’ve had such a great week recently. In one week, we received news that Solana would be bumped up in math because she’s so damn smart. Then her volleyball coach invited her to play on the 6th grade volleyball team, despite the fact that she’s only in 5th grade! And then she was selected for the yearbook club as a photographer!! We are so proud of Solana and these major accomplishments!!

Additionally, we received really good news about Sienna too. Just to make sure I don’t get any of it wrong, I’m attaching the email her teacher sent us. Needless to say, it brought me and Brax to tears and made our moms cry too. We have a very special little girl…

Hi Veronica and Braxton,

Sienna is having so much fun on her birthday! This morning I gave Sienna her birthday crown, birthday pencil, and birthday certificate followed by a special birthday sticker. 🙂 She is very excited to celebrate her birthday tonight with her family.

I wanted to let you know how impressed I am with your daughter. As a teacher, I have been fortunate enough to teach many students throughout my 5 years of experience. However, rarely do I get to meet students like Sienna.

Sienna’s maturity, self-control, discipline, ability to focus, and compassion are outstanding and very advanced for her age. She is one of the sweetest, kindest, and most empathetic young students that I’ve met.

I’m very proud of her academic skills- her writing is gorgeous, her reading is above level, and she is a very quick learner in math. However, I am most impressed with her heart and her personality. Those are skills that you cannot teach-she must have learned them from you!

You have raised one special little girl and I’m very happy to have her as a student this year. She is one-of-a-kind. 🙂

Warmly,
Lauren Ridley
