Another great day for Ains. She won 1st place in the essay contest for all of the Benjamin Franklin schools. We are so proud of her. There are 4 schools, 3 to 4 1st grade classes at each one, with 2 contestants from each class. She has really been shining lately! They had a dinner for the top 3 winners of each class level, and the 1st place winners read them out loud. She wouldn't read it. She is just way too shy, so her teacher read it for her. At least she stood up in front of everyone, right? Here is a copy of her essay:
Rainbow Ice Cream Makes me Happy
Rainbow ice cream makes me happy because it is yummy and colorful. It has pink and green in it which are two colors that I like. This ice cream is cold on my tongue. It is very creamy. I like rainbow ice cream.
