Last Thursday evening we attended Allie's Readathon Medal Ceremony at her school. Throughout the school year, Allie has been calculating her reading minutes and turning them in monthly to her teacher in an effort to reach her reading goal of 400 minutes/month. All the kids who reach that goal receive a medal at the end of the year. Allie was especially excited this year because all of the kids in her class turned in their reading minutes every month. In recognition of this achievement, her class' name will be engraved on a special plaque in the entryway of her school. Only 2 classes in the entire school received this honor!
Before we left for the ceremony, I just had to capture the girls in their coordinating sundresses. I love it that Allie still thinks its fun to match Olivia!
Before the ceremony we had to get a picture of Allie and her good friend Abby.
