About Alicia - Jake - Carner - Caedan
The McDonald clan has been super busy since we were ALL together. God has continued to keep us in His care and we are truly grateful for all He has done, despite a global pandemic, rising gas prices, and inflation to name just a few things. We praise God for our family and the love that flows between us. Blessed be the tie that binds!

To God be the Glory! Great things He has done! All is well! I am still working in the valley as Instructor/ Director of THE Fort Valley State University Choir. I am blessed to still be a part of and minister at House of Hope Atlanta, House of Hope Macon, Jackson Memorial Baptist Church, and St. Luke Baptist Church. Carner McDonald Consulting/CMC LLC continues to exist and thrive! It makes room for itself even when I don’t. That is truly a blessing! We have also been blessed to do our own home renovations that have been successful thus far. I can’t wait for you all to see it in person!

This is Carner McDonald, and oh boy, I haven’t been through too much in the past few months, but that doesn’t mean it was not a great experience. I’ve been in gifted classes for the past school year, and honestly, it wasn’t even bad or too hard at all. All of the teachers were nice, and I enjoyed being in their classrooms everyday. All of them were definitely a huge part of the experience itself. The work definitely was not too hard. Some of it was even very easy for me to understand at times. There were also some events we went to at school, known as PBIS (Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports), which gave us opportunities to have fun, and relax, with no work involved at all. We also did quite a few projects, and like normal work, they weren’t really too hard at all. When I finally completed them, the satisfaction when I was done with each of them, felt really, REALLY, good. I made A/B Honor Roll. All of this hard work has successfully paid off to the point where next year, I am going to be entering two advanced classes, 9 th Grade Math, and 9 thGrade Science as well. I am extremely proud of myself knowing that I have successfully made it this far, and I hope I continue to keep going further and beyond my expectations, no matter what happens.
I turned 8 years old in March. On the same day, I got a plush that I named Monkey. It was the best day of my life! I went to a Japanese Hibachi Restaurant, called Miyako. I had my parents, brother; aunts, cousins and my best friend Ramaah Duval come to eat with me.
I had a great time in my 2nd grade of 2021-22 at Bethlehem Elementary School. I got 5 Awards: All A’s Honor Roll, Accelerated Reader, Bobcat Good, Cool As A Cucumber. I also made Excellent In Art and Music.
My year has basically been spent at Walgreens. I just reached 19 years with the company in March of this year. I am still currently at my store in McDonough,
and also have been given the task of covering another store in Stockbridge until a manager is found. I have also been busy around the house, following the orders given by the Lil’ General. I have also been enjoying time with the boys. Looking forward to getting together and breaking bread with everyone again.
