THINGS TO BE PROUD OF

         I try not to brag about my grandchildren in this newsletter (except once in a while). I can honestly say that I love all ten of them equally so when I brag about one, I am not slighting another. A few of them have done noteworthy things recently so I am going to brag. My grandson Alex Nagy who lives in Clemmons, NC  recently earned his Eagle Scout a couple of weeks before his 16th birthday. This is quite an achievement. Did you know that between 10 and 12 percent of students at West Point, The Naval Academy and the Air Force Academy are Eagle Scouts. Four of the current cabinet nominees in Washington are also Eagle Scouts. Then there is my grandson Noah Mofield here in Durham who is quite a musician. He has been named to the National High School Honors Chorus which performs later this spring in Minneapolis—-pretty good for just a freshman in high school. Then, bringing up the rear (only because she is the youngest) is my granddaughter Effie Craver who lives in Columbia , MO. She recently brought home the gold medal in all four of her gymnastic events in her last meet. They must get all of this talent from their grandmother.
