Congrats to Colin!

We found out last week that Colin won FIRST PLACE in a district-wide writing contest!  He entered in the Short Story category, and his story was chosen from all the stories submitted by 2nd through 6th graders.  We are so proud of him!!

He wrote a story about Lydia inventing a "writer's block ear bud" for her brother, Nate.  He struggled to find a good topic that would fit the requirements and also appeal to the judging audience.  He wished for a way to get over writer's block, and thus the idea for his story was born! 

His principal brought him up on stage during a recent all-school assembly.  He was the only winner from his school.  His story will be published in a book that will be distributed to all the district libraries.

I thought it funny that he chose to wear his "Thing 1" shirt the day of the assembly!  (Nate and Lydia have "Thing 2" and "Thing 3" shirts.)
