Here's a quick note to let y'all know that Kaisa's 1st grade team won the District Battle of the Books competition last night. A very special THANK you to my sister Elsa and my friend Kookie for making their tie-dye t-shirts in less than six hours!
My six year old can READ, READ, READ! She loves reading. Like mother, like daughter! Although when she was interviewed after winning, she said, "Thanks mom for making me read all those books and always making us study when we got them wrong."
MAKING?! I didn't MAKE her. Did I?! haha. Oh well, she's six, that's my excuse.
Anyway, I rarely get nervous, and throughout the WHOLE competition, I was NERVOUS. I mean, lump in my stomach, ready to throw up nervous! Every time she got on the mic and said, "Caps for Sale, by Esphyr Slobdkina," I held my breath!
Yes, they had to remember and SAY ESPHYR SLOBDKINA.
Anyway, Here's to the 1st grade DISTRICT CHAMPS. The JNES Challengers!
Kaisa, Kelly Jr, and Kaitlyn. Whoop, Whoop!
