I love ACMA! It is by far the best school in Beaverton! I have identical twin girls, who are 16 years old and juniors. They are both thespians, and very active in the theater department. They are also both in Synergy (choir), and Eowyn is a writer. My stepson is just turning 10 and in 4th grade. I've been living in Beaverton for most of the last 36 years, and am a graduate of Aloha High School and Oregon State University. My partner and I have been together for 4 years, and I'm a SAHM while working on my organizing business and playing chauffeur to my kids. We have 2 whippets, 3 kitties, a fish, a frog, and a snake.
