Mighty Girls

While we may not have ended up with our first female president this election, I can assure you that the future of our country is in excellent female hands. Just look at what these Mighty Girls have been up to in the last two weeks:

Swimming in two new events with little advance notice
and rallying her team to improve their times

Standing up and singing out for girls' empowerment and The Malala
Fund, AND serving as a school ambassador at an anti-bullying conference

And being one of six students chosen out of 1,000 entries to have 
her editorial cartoon published by the New! York! Times!

Georgia was encouraged by her history teacher to enter the contest, and we knew nothing about it until she found out she was one of the winners. It is such a big honor, and we are so proud of her for peacefully and thoughtfully expressing her opinion through her art. Cheers to the artiste!

As we head toward the holiday later this week, we of course have much to reflect on and give thanks for. We are grateful for our happy, healthy family, our dear and supportive friends, and the marvelous country we get to live in, warts and all. We hope everyone has a bountiful feast and a joyous time spent with loved ones - Happy Thanksgiving!

And here are a few (of many!) moments to remember Georgia and Ivy being their mighty, mighty selves:
