LILY WON HER GRADE AT THE SCIENCE FAIR! She, Josh, and I worked on a project that compared how high six different kinds of balls bounced. She had to roll them off the top of a door frame and then I took pictures of them at the peak of their bounce. The night before the science fair we had a mock science fair at our house were Emma, Josh, and I pretended that we were judges and we asked Lily questions about her project. She had the most intelligent answers, but of course I would think that. I felt better when Josh told me, "If she pulls out some of that cuteness tomorrow she is going to blow them away."
This morning I took her in early to school and carried in all her balls, poster, and a less than helpful toddler. I got her set and then I had to leave. They don't let parents stay for judging. I came back at 2:15 for the awards, that were announced in front of the school. Of course I had to sit on the bleachers fighting back tears. She looked so cute and smart and little and precious and proud and happy and... tear. Love that face.
