A little off the top

March 10th, 2009

I am working on a long post which probably won’t be half as revealing or uplifting as this one, courtesy of Georgia:

OK, so there’s this contest at school called WordMasters and you fill out this paper and turn it in. So today at lunch I see my friend M and run over to her and start to hug her, then these two girls in her class come over to me saying that I won the contest and I got excited, so I went over to my friend C and told her what they said but I wasn’t quite sure if I believed them. Then C and I went on the bars and told JL, H, and JG. They got so excited that they picked me up. Then we went inside and I got a paper that said: Congratulations! Your child, Georgia Miller, will receive recognition in the next Spotlight Assembly for their achievement in the WordMasters Meet. Grade: 3 Award: First Place!!!

Oh and I also got my bangs cut.


  1. Awesome Georgia Grace! (My youngest daughter’s middle name is also Grace – so so lovely!)

  3. Congratulations to Georgia!

    Emily received the letter from Georgia yesterday and she was so excited! (almost as excited as mom when the cookies arrived!) She immediately sat down and wrote a long letter back to her, so tell Georgia to expect a letter from her new penpal soon!

    Last night at bedtime Emily asked when we can go to California, I told her I wasn’t sure and asked why she was asking, and she said “because Georgia said we can go to Disneyland with her when we come to California!!” 😉
