Yesterday, Sadie travelled to Lazbuddie for her first UIL competition. She competed in Story Telling. They read all of the kids a story. The kids can take notes on it if they want; then they are given some time to think about the story. Finally, each contestant tells their story to the judge. She was ecstatic to make the finals and very pleased to place fourth. Sadie and I had a fun day with her friends and classmates. It was really neat to see them encouraging one another and excited for each other's success. Sadie's already planning which events she wants to compete in next year.
