Expert project

 Ella had to pick an area of "expertise" and do a presentation to her first grade class. After much consideration, she decided to do her project on being a big sister, "because I'm really, really good at that!" Yes, she is!
She came up with a list of things she does for and with Cade and Harper, then we took pictures of her doing those things. She put her board together and practiced so hard for her speech. She was so excited and not a bit nervous. A pic of her with her poster before school yesterday-
A little closer
She came home yesterday afternoon with the biggest smile on her face. She said, "Mom, my expert project was GREAT!! It was so fun and everyone asked questions and they kept saying 'Ah, your baby sister is so cute!' I LOVED talking in front of the class!" So Ella, our shy toddler who wouldn't  dare say a peep to a stranger a few years ago, has discovered she enjoys public speaking. Needless to say, she is pretty stinkin' proud- and so are we!
