Congratulations, Laurel!

Laurel was just informed that she won second place in a writing contest sponsored by her dad's employer. The topic: When It's Right to Do Wrong.

She wrote about how she jumped into a pond to help her then four-year-old brother paddle to safety. Upon our arrival at the pond, she had been given stern warning that she was not to get wet, you see. So much for stern warnings, and Thank God for life-vests. Not to mention big sisters.

To this day we're still sketchy on the details of how Sean came to be in the water but, no matter. For once she was glad to have been given a writing assignment.

Speaking of writing, Liam gave it a shot today.
