This is a Proud Grandma Post.
The picture above is of our oldest granddaughter, Alexis, taken on the first day of school this year. Alexis has always been interested in books and all that pertain to them. She wrote stories as soon as she learned to write, and she fills journals with her thoughts. She won an Honorable Mention in a story competition that had entries from a large metro area.
So, it came as little surprise when I learned that she'd been selected to the editor of her middle school yearbook. She'd attended a Yearbook Workshop a couple of weeks before school began, and it seems she'd been sending creative ideas through the summer to the teacher who works with the yearbook staff. Her long-range goal is to become a journalist.
Lexie, I wish you the best this year as you lead the yearbook team. May your literary endeavors continue to grow.
