Amelia is a published author!

One of Amelia's stories was chosen for inclusion in the Sun Prairie school district's literary publication for this year!  It's quite a thick book, with stories written by kids all the way from kindergarten to 12th grade.  We went to a ceremony last night where Amelia received a certificate and a copy of the magazine.  She was very excited!

They called the kids up on stage school by school, about 10 at a time.  While there were about 30 kids from Amelia's school chosen, there were only 3 kindergarteners.  Doesn't Amelia look so small compared to the rest of the kids?

Here is the story that was published:

I think this is really funny because it makes it seem like Amelia always has to pack her own lunch, when in reality, I pack her lunch for her most days.  But some days she does help, and she is very excited when she gets to pack her lunch all by herself.  She is good at including food from all the food groups, although she always packs a juice box (whereas I always make her drink water at lunch).

Here's the author with her story:
