My gosh, after 26 years, I've got 4 rows of ribbons with two sitting on top. She's got 3 rows with 2 sitting on top. This woman has a bright career ahead of her.

Amazing all these kids are volunteers. They are there because they want to be. Achievement is in there nature.

Another outstanding example of what can be accomplished without restraints.

Polly sure has accomplished a lot in 21 years. Her accomplishments say a lot for home schooling. Wow, she is a High-Power rifle shooter and went through jump school. Another 21 years and who knows what amazing things her resume' will hold.
