I wrote about Jenna on her birthday in 2016 and in that post are links to all her previous posts.
And in those previous posts are many pictures of Jenna and how she's changed 'through the years' so I'll just put a few in here.
So now I'll talk briefly about what a sweet and accomplished girl she is. But first of all, she became an aunt for the 6th time this year and adores all her nieces and nephews with all her heart.
And this year she was selected by her high school's athletic department to be one of ten students to represent her school in the Conference Student-Athletic Leadership Forum. The selection was based on work ethic, attitude, and character in competition.
And she was inducted into the National Honor Society.
She was an All-District Pitcher as a Freshman at her high school (This picture is from club softball)
She started playing for a very competitive and prestigious fast pitch softball team and because of that and her performance in high school has started getting noticed by some smaller colleges already.
And she played golf for her school again this year and performed very well.
Jenna has had a busy and successful year but most importantly she is a sweet, loving, and family oriented girl. She's very close with her best friend cousin, Anna
And all her other cousins as well (here she is performing with her cousin in the family talent show on NYE)
And, of course, she's very close with her brother, Jeremy
She had an idea for a Kids' New Years Eve party which was very successful after she and Anna organized everything themselves.
She's beyond sweet and sensitive, very thoughtful, and always cheerful and positive. Jenna is a wonderful gift, and loving granddaughter and we're wishing her the happiest of birthdays and a year filled with even more accomplishments and dreams come true. Happy Birthday, Jenna. We love you very much and could not be more proud of you!
