I think the smile says it all.
Elena competed in the Concours d’art Oratoire for her school division, and received troisième place (third place) for her recitation of the poem Le Vent. I can’t even put her excitement into words. I thought she was going to fly.
Grandma was in town to see the event, and it was a very good visit. And because Grandma was here, we had the grandkids over for dinner, and my wonderful brother put the little one in her new dress.
Auntie Laura was so proud.
