Here will be yet another chapter in the short life of Elizabeth, or Elie as she was soon to be nicknamed by her sixth grade school friends!
In 1985 We made our final move as a family from Dudley Massachusetts to Louisville, Kentucky when Terry took another job as Dean Of Students at Bellarmine University. This was a great move, because it put us closer to both of our families. Liz started 5th grade at St. Agnes School, as did Jenny and Joe start there in grades 4 and 8.
With seven years to span, I have a lot of work to do over several pages! Hope you enjoy the journey!
My favorite picture of Liz in 5th grade! I think it really reflects her sunny, beautiful disposition!
Growing up so fast! Liz ready for another day of school in 5th grade.

Liz started 6th grade at Kammerer Middle School in Louisville in 1986. This is where she really began to soar in sports! She continued with gymnastics, soccer, and cross country running.
In case you are wondering, this is also where she got her nickname, "Elie". It seems that there were too many "Elizabeth's" or "Liz's". so she and her friend Anne Moyer decided that the name "Elie" would be appropriate!

Liz was #1 Cross Country runner in Jefferson County Middle Schools! She was only 4' 11, but she certainly had the speed and determination!
