Caleb Kirk was nominated by his 3rd grade teacher to attend a very exclusive trip to Washington, D.C. Our family can't afford to pay for it all, but with your help he can still go.

Caleb has only attended public school since 2010 and has been an A student from the beginning. Now he is in fourth grade and has maintained an A average for three years. He is a member of the Benito Martinez Little Dribbler's basketball team and the cheer squad. He is not only a member of the Benito Martinez Junior Elementary Honor Society, he is also the Vice President. Caleb has served as a mentor and tutor to his classmates and siblings. He works hard to be part of a Spanish speaking culture and has been able to learn some Spanish himself.

The nomination to attend this trip is a real priviledge. We teach our kids the scriptures and Proverbs says "a man's gift makes a place for him before kings." We also teach them to be patient and wait to be invited to participate so you know you are being blessed. Still, all of us were surprised when Caleb brought the letters home describing the situation.

You can all take a look here to see the programs for yourself. Caleb was actually nominated for an 8 day trip to DC and Philidelphia around the 4th of July. It's very expensive and we are not sure if we can raise enough so together with Caleb we decided on a less expensive four day trip called D.C. Decoded.

It's still a great trip. Caleb will stay with other kids like himself at the 4-H Youth camp, meet a congressman, serve as a volunteer, go to the Smithsonian and a whole lot more.

We've already paid the deposit and if we can meet out goal quickly we'll pay the trip off in plenty of time. In the meantime we'll be working with Caleb to apply for some scholarships and raise funds selling candies, possibly some car washes or neighborhood work projects. If we raise more than our goal Caleb would like to save it in hopes of attending again next year.

Thanks for all your help and God Bless.
