student of the month & an award

Karsen recently won (a major)* award. Her school participated in the "Together We Can" awards. Students could choose to submit a creative idea of their choosing that applied to their theme. Karsen chose to submit an acrostic poem in the literature category. Here is it.

*post-holiday reference to A Christmas Story. Anyone get it?

I realize this is not the most exciting post, and I haven't written in a while.....I just know that life seems super busy right now between the kids' schedules, my school, and everything else in between. I am making it a point to write this down, capture it, remember it* Because these are the sort of things I don't want to forget. 
*Another reference...this time to a song....anyone know it? Forgive me, when I am tired I get a little tangential. Ha!
