On Sunday morning, Annie M. Brooks, mother of Andrew Brooks, went to Heaven to be with Our Heavenly Father. Please keep our family in your prayers as we go through this difficult time. We are continuing to work as much as we can but our hearts are heavy but joyful that Annie/Anne is no longer in pain from colorectal cancer. She fought a good fight for a year and a half, along with a heart attack and stroke during that time period. She must be overjoyed at meeting Kayde, her first great grandchild, for the first time and reuniting with Henry, her husband, and Margaret, her daughter. Anne was a wonderful person who touched everyone’s lives with her generosity and kindness. ~Chris Brooks
Wow!!! I can’t believe it’s been so long since I posted on the blog. Here are just a few things that have been going on.
Heart Bypass Surgery update: I recently got a good bill of health from Dr. Joe Johnson. The imperfection on my lung is gone. I do still have some blockage in the carotid artery but it hasn’t worsened in the past year. Dr. Johnson wants me to exercise and/or walk at least 5 days a week. Continuing to eat healthy and exercising will go a long way in helping me to lose my holiday weight too.
FPD & MDS parents and students:
We have been busy with Winter sports and have a lot of images online now at www.abphotos.com/photocart Check them out.
Continuing Education/Duck Portraits: Chris and I just returned from a great photography conference in Florida. We can’t wait to implement what we learned. We are most excited about our upcoming Duck Portraits. Watch here and/or Facebook for more information.
That’s right Santa is right around the corner again. Yes, we always have to think about this even though it’s not even Halloween :-).
Santa will arrive at 9 a.m. on Saturday, November 19th but will only be with us until 1 p.m. So tell your children to start making their lists to share with Santa while you’re getting busy contacting us to schedule your appointment. No cookies needed.
We have a couple of different packages this year and as always Chris can videotape your session with Santa.
FPD won the GHSA girls soccer state championship over Paideia. The 3-2 home victory gave FPD their first GHSA state championship in any sport.
FPD built a 2-0 lead in the match on a pair of goals from senior striker Rebecca Miller. Junior Melissa Hash assisted both goals.
The Vikings defense had only allowed 1 goal to a GHSA team this season and the lead was an important one.
Paideia would answer with 2 consecutive goals during a 10-minute stretch to tie the game at 2-2. Sophomore Atalia Ramirez one touched a Paideia defelection into the upper corner of the goal with less than 3 minutes left to put FPD up 3-2.
The left-footed shot from 25 yards out was one of the true highlights of the 2011 season. FPD held the lead for the final few minutes and won the match 3-2. FPD was undefeated in GHSA play and finished with a record of 21-1.
The total goals allowed this season (5) sets a school record. The girls also set a record with 140 goals scored.
The 2011 seniors are Katie Scott, JoJo Murphy, Caitlyn Bowman and Rebecca Miller.
Thanks for a great season!!
