SSI 2011

This last week several of us kids had the great privilege of
attending the  Student Statesmanship Institute in Lansing.

For those who don't know, SSI is a summer camp offering real-world simulations of
legislative, judicial,  media, and business fields.

Here's the breakdown of what the various people from our family did:

Jon was a trial lawyer in the Mock Trial track 

Grace participated in the media track.
She was part of the newspaper staff

Melody was also in the Mock Trial track

Joe was a Senator

Anna was a Senator as well

SSI is a great place to make and renew friendships!

-The original four-
(the four guys roomed together 3 years ago, and formed a lasting friendship)

SSI 2011 week two! (click on the pic to find us!)
The most awesome week of the summer!

There are two parts to the media track (which Grace participated in):
Broadcast and Newspaper (Grace was on the paper side of things)

We will try to get the newspaper links posted sometime in the future.

Anyways, we thought you might like to see the three broadcasts from the week!
Watch for people you know!

We had a wonderful time, and are already looking forward to next year!!!!!!!


  1. Great pictures! I love that one of Grace with the newspapers!
    It was such a great week! I look forward to even more fun with you guys next year!


  2. It truly was a great time! Miss everyone, and I can't wait to see you all again soon! Hopefully, we will see you at the banquet. =)
