We are extremely proud to be able to share with you this milestone for our family. Our daughter Fernanda is a member of the US Air Force Academy Class of 2020. The weekend of March 13th, the Academy decided to send the juniors, sophomores and freshmen home (like the rest of the US student population) but decided to keep Seniors to make sure they were ready to graduate in May and go on to serve as Air Force Officers. Because of the pandemic and because of other hardships the cadets went through, graduation was moved up to April 18th. The only ones present were the Cadets, Academy Administration, and our Vice President who was the keynote speaker. This was the first time in the Academy's history that the graduation took place on a Saturday and with only 2 days of ceremonies. It is normally a whole week of graduation festivities. Even so, we are extremely grateful that Fernanda is alive and well, and that she was able to celebrate graduation with her classmates. Immediate and extended family members were able to witness the ceremonies in our living rooms, glued to our TVs. It was very strange indeed, but nonetheless, we were happy to be in this era of technology that allowed us to "be there" and share the moment with her. Fernanda was commissioned as a Second Lieutenant in the United States Air Force.

Ace is a senior at Point Loma High School. There are so many things to brag about with Ace but of course I’m his mother and that’s what I do :) Ace had so many things going on in the weeks surrounding the shut down of the city and the schools. Ace loves making films and he is active in the school theater. The weekend after the school shut down was the play They all worked on so hard for months. He spent hours after school every day. Also, he is so talented in film. He is in the film arts department at PL high. He is also a mentor to the lower class men in the video production department there. He was emailed a week prior to the shut down by the San Diego Film Week that one of his movies was being shown during film week this year (he was nominated at the San Diego film week last year also) and was waiting to hear if he was nominated again on top of it being shown. Of course it has been postponed. Two weeks after the shut down was a luncheon he was invited by the task force involved in crime stoppers and child abuse. Ace made a film on it. He was being honored at the luncheon. There are just so many things he is missing. His DMV appointment was canceled and don’t get me started on graduation. These kids deserve to have the simple things like a prom. He recently created a feature film with a group of friends called “grape soda” they were going to the prom dressed in purple to support the movie. He knows all of this is temporary and that things will hopefully get back to normal soon but it’s sad to see them all so bored and missing out on their senior year. They have waited and worked hard for 12 years for this. He tries to be positive and keeps very busy working on projects. At the moment he’s writing lyrics and music. He plays guitar and sings.

This is my Senior….Taylor …Poway High Class of 2020…Where to begin…she is the bravest and strong person I know. She was born a preemie at just 4lbs with not much of a chance to survive…beyond all odds and after weeks in the NICU she made it!!

She played volleyball since the 6th grade but in her sophomore year her playing got derailed…her scoliosis (diagnosed in middle school) progressed to the point that she needed to undergo an 8 hour surgery to correct two of her three curves…by day 3 post surgery she was standing, walking and going up a flight of stairs (and grew three inches)…WHAT!?!! She made it back to volleyball for one more year and spent the last 2 years of HS (in between school) volunteering at a her church teaching Sunday school and also volunteered at our Local elementary school classroom helping an amazing 4th grade teacher with some of the kiddos with special needs. She is ready for her next adventure going to Northern AZ University in the fall for Elementary Ed and a special Education (this baby girl wants to live in SNOW!???!). We have days of joy and tears for what’s been sacrificed because of COVID…yet each day she persists…and I could not be prouder ❤️
