Esther's award ceremony for designing a poster that won first prize was on May 7 at the downtown Lancaster Library. That's her enlarged drawing behind them.
Wow. Balloons! This is the big time.
One of Esther's Sunday School teachers came for the ceremony - pictured above. And one of my good friends (Sherry - hey I mentioned you on the blog!) came too - and fought off lots of scary abductors in a locked parking garage - but I didn't take her picture (so sad).
They look sweet here, but really they were hyper and couldn't stand or sit still. This is Alex and Es with one of Esther's best friends. It is so sweet that she and her mom came to celebrate with us.
And first place in Division 2 for grades three to five is - - - - - - - Esther!!!
Cylo from the local baseball team was there to congratulate all the winners and to make us all laugh.
At dinner time, the very giggly girls enjoyed their sodas while we ate a meal consisting of Egyptian, Iraqi, and Syrian food. Quite a meal.
