Junior Toastmaster's Tall Tale Contest

This year our homeschool group offers a Speakers Club is being directed by a Toastmasters Master Speaker, Ms. Vogel.  Each of the youth are required to present six speeches and compete in the Speaker's Contest. Last year Abigail completed all six speeches but because of her commitment to the varsity softball team she was unable to compete in the contest. 

This year the girl was all prepared to compete.  The youth were to present a Tall Tale.  Abigail chose to present her 'Nina Story.'  Which you would have thought was a tall tale except every word of it was true! 

Jon's company gave us tickets to their luxury box at the Bon Jovi concert tonight so we headed to the concert.  But like a the great friend that she is, Ms. Donna and the boys came down to cheer Abigail on!  It's great to see the girl being independent and surrounded by friends.  She drove herself and Frankie to the contest.  Ms. Robin and Ms. Donna texted me updates and pictures of her presenting her speech.  And after wards the girls went out to Braum's with the Gungans and the Hansens.
