Hello Everyone this is Nolen.
I am writing you today because select students from my school have been offered an incredible learning journey. I have the chance to travel abroad to England, Scotland, and France for an 11 day journey in March 2016. Since I am underage my Mom will also be traveling with me. Within those 11 days we will get to visit the cities of Edinburgh, Yorkshire, Warwick, Stratford, Oxford, London, and Paris. We will be a member of a tour group that travels with an expert tour guide and will learn while exploring historic sites such as, Edinburgh Castle, New College, St. Paul’s Cathedral, the Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace, Stonehenge, the Effel Tower, the homes of Alexandar Graham Bell, and Anne Hathaway, just to name a few. This opportunity is once in a lifetime and I am privileged to be able to have a chance to travel internationally at such a young age!!
However, this trip is costly and to be able to afford the journey we are humbly asking for help. Any monetary amount that you contribute to our fund would greatly benefit our upcoming trip. I am very appreciative of your generosity. If you are not able to give at this time, we ask for Prayers in our time of fundraising and especially in our journey next spring.
Mom has added the links to our Donations page right above my letter.
Again Thank You for Support and Prayers.

Nolen: Our little guy is trying really hard to raise money for his trip to Europe in the Spring. He is Thriving in school. We learned he earned a perfect score on his Math T-cap test. He did not get that from his Mom! Nolen just started 5th and loves it. He got his first locker this year. Nolen loves to watch old NASCAR races after school. He loves anything to do with cars or History. His sense of humor has me laughing these days. He is mellow like his father. They both have witty come back lines. He is the glue that keeps me together most days. He is a giant helper and ALWAYS tries to calm any situation. He is starting to turn into a teenager before our eyes and I am not ready.
Grayson: The Baby is smack in the middle of Potty Training and he could careless. He has been my hardest to Train no doubt. We are starting to see it click in his brain so hopefully he won't start kindergarten in pull-ups. He still has attachment issues but he started Mother's Day Out and LOVES. He hasn't cried once which is a big change from last year. There are some days he doesn't leave my side which can be exhausting at times. His vocabulary is growing every day. He knows his colors and can count to 10!! All he talks about is camping. He LOVES the camper. He is the baby and knows it. He can manipulate any of us into getting him anything he wants. His little personality cracks us up daily. He is a mixture of Nolen and Trevor. His Smiles melts us. We adore our little Baby even if he thinks hes a Big Boy now!!
