Well...Kari won first place in the essay contest! It was such a blessing to see her rewarded for her essay and a neat surprise that she won first place. I think she really wanted to win first place, but was not wanting to get her hopes up (1st place included a $100 award). I was cautiously optimistic. I started to cry when they announced her name.
She got to read her essay and it was so neat to hear her. She did this little hair flip thing while she read that was just so cute!
It was nice to have Grammie and Poppy at the luncheon and ceremony, too.
Here are a few pictures.....
The first picture is of Kari's certificate. The second one is Kari with her certificate. And the last one is of the program from the ceremony. None of the states were drawn in, so Noah drew in Texas. LOL
