Ella was so excited to be her class' Star of the Week last week. She was supposed to bring a posterboard with pictures and captions of things that would tell the class all about her. We had the idea to make a border on her posterboard out of duck tape and it turned out pretty cool! We also had fun selecting pictures to show to her class of trips, family pics, hobbies, pics of her when she was leetle :) Going through the pictures reminded me of what a cutie this girl was and still is. Ella has always been a sweetheart with a beautiful smile and golden heart. She is a wonderful daughter and an outstanding student at school. We just had parent teacher conferences and her teacher said to me, "I wish I could have a class full of Ellas!" That made me smile and when I told Ella later it made her smile too:) Ella captioned all the pictures and selected the "style" and color of her name-purple and fancy-two of her favorite things. When she brought home her poster on Friday, she also came home with notes from all the kids in her class complimenting her. She went through each one and read them outloud to me with the biggest smile(She also read them each outloud to Joey when he got home-she loves to read outloud and wanted to read them over and over. Didn't hurt that everything she was reading were awesome things about her! :) She really enjoyed being a STAR! We love you Ella bean and are proud of you!
