Every year our school has a program called "Reflections", it's an arts type of program where they give you a theme and have several different categories that you can submit your work. Some of the categories are visual arts, photography, lyrical, literature and film.
The theme this year was "Believe, Dream, Inspire". Since our Emma is such a writer, she of course wrote a book! Her book is called "One Dream" and it is the story of Caroline who lives back in the 1800's and has a dream that she ends slavery. Because of that dream, she is inspired to write President Lincoln encouraging him to end slavery.
This kid has an imagination, I tell ya! And they thought so too, because her story won first place and now gets sent down to the state level!
She was pretty stoked about this...Her dream, of course, is to be a writer. This kid has written a bazillion stories, or should I say, started a bazillion stories. Not kidding, if you were to clean her room right now, you'd find about 6 different types of notebooks with stories in them. She writes anything from a fairytale to mysteries. Last Halloween she wrote a mystery that had me so enthralled, I begged her to finish it because I had to know what happened to the kids in the castle. I'm still waiting...
Way to go Emma, we're so proud of you!
