Kameron's first place story

A week or so ago Kameron was working on writing a story. He was at the counter writing and reading it to his dad. I could hear he and Paul talking about ideas as he wrote the story. I thought it was for his class and noticed he was taking his time and doing a good job. Last week he said, "Mom, can you help me type this story? I have to turn it in tomorrow." So I helped him type it up. The next morning he called me from the school and said, "Mom! I need you to come up and sign my story so they know I wrote it." He mentioned something about Reflections. I talked to the secretary and found out that he had, indeed, entered the Reflections competition all by himself.

The other day, we got a phone call telling us that we needed to be at the Assembly on Friday morning because Kameron was getting an award. Since we were leaving, we had to send Grandma Vicki and Tiffany to take pictures. I just called home and he got a first place ribbon and gets to move on. There may have been only 6 enteries, but I am so proud of him that he did it by himself. Congrats, Kam on doing such a great job and having initiative!

Perhaps I'll be able to post the story later. Signing off from the airport in New York.......
