Declaration Declamation

Abby made it to the Declamation* semi-finals along with a few of her 4th grade classmates. She will be reciting a poem in front of 600 people in a few weeks.

She is ready.

This is quite an accomplishment for a kid who, in kindergarten, almost threw up just thinking about standing on stage with her class, to sing “Grand Old Flag” in unison.

Of course, that was before she was a seasoned actress.

* OK, I’ll admit it. I looked it up.
