Young Author Tea

Back during the Christmas break, Elise worked very hard on her Young Authors book. This was her first time participating in this school event. She had to write and illustrate a story. Her story was all about a Chinese New Year Cheerleading Tiger. It's a really cute story and she worked so hard on the project.

Today was the tea at school to honor all the kids who participated. Elise is the one in the middle with her BFF Vivian on her right. Vivian's story was all about her trip to China a few years ago.

For the "tea", we divided up in small groups and read each child's book. The other kids in the group talked about what they liked the best about each book. Afterwards, they got juice and cookies. Each book was adorable in it's own way and the kids were so proud to hear their books being read and hearing what everyone in the group liked about their story.

And a kind mother offered to take a picture of Elise and I. Much as I hate pictures of myself, I never end up with any of myself with the kids, so I greatly appreciated this other mother's offer to snap a quick picture.

It was a fun day and I'm proud of my Young Author!

I happen to love the picture of you and Elise! But I know what you mean, I always end up taking the pictures so I don't have to be in them.
