Hello, my name is Elizabeth McKoen.  I am 5 years old and am a kindergartener at Merrill Elementary.  I have a twin brother named Franklin.  We live with our parents Mike and Jennifer McKoen on our family farm in Merrill, Oregon.  My favorite activities are coloring and drawing.  I am excited to be a Jr Princess this year just like my mom was when she was in kindergarten!

Hello, my name is Oaklee Ann McKoen.  My parents are Chris and Loralee McKoen.  I am 5 years old.  I graduated from Malin Preschool this past spring and will be attending Merrill Elementary in the fall.  I love riding my pony, Clarence, to check the cows and calves with my dad.  I also enjoy playing with my kitties, chickens and my sister Rita Jean.  When I grow up I would like to be a gymnast.
