A young author

Last Friday, Tom and I were thrilled to celebrate with Candace as she received the Young Authors Award for her class. We are big readers and writers around here, and we try to encourage our children to love the written word as well. There is one student selected from each of the elementary classrooms. It makes us especially proud that Candace's story was chosen since she has only been speaking English for two and a half years.
