I Won!

Hi Everyone,
I won a writing contest sponsored by the YMCA. The essay was about responsibility. I could have chosen caring, respect or honesty to write about but I wrote about responsibility. I had to write about what responsiblity means and someone who shows it and I wrote about my 5th grade teacher, Mrs. Johnson. Here's a picture of the congratulating letter, the certificate award that said I won and my wonderful masterpiece.

I got two Sea World tickets for the prize and I will bring a friend with me. I'm hoping my Uncle Jeff takes us. Please...Uncle Jeff?

Here they are:

Casey, congratulations Big Time! What an honor. Pat yourself on the back for doing a wonderful job. I hope Mrs. Johnson will get to see this special essay. She must be a terrific teacher and a really good person. I'm sure she loves having a student like you in her class. Have fun at Sea World. They picked the right essay for the prize! Everyone is so proud of you, including me! Have a great weekend! I'll be seeing your grandma and grandpa tomorrow. Wish I could see you too. Your friend Barb Cabot

Hi Chiaro,

Thanks for the compliment and commenting. My grandparents are proud of me and so is my teacher.

Yes my grandma is. Actually we've already planned. We planned it last summer. We're going back to Fattoria Viticcio, Montepulciano and Morocco.
