Team of the Week- All for Justice! Justice is a sweet 6 year old that will be starting first grade this Fall. He is a very active boy who loves to participate in any sport that involves playing with a ball. As he has gotten older, and his verbal skills have improved it is apparent he has quite a sense of humor. He loves playing and teasing his little sister, Samantha. Justice is a joy to be around and seems to put a smile on everyone's face that he meets.
