Since Holden didn't have school on Friday (snow/cold, etc.) he had to wait until YESTERDAY (Monday) to find out if he placed in the Science Fair! GUESS WHAT?
SECOND PLACE out of the entire 4th Grade!!!!!!!! WHOOHOO!

I had trouble reading the certificate, but mom said that it says "Maple Ridge Elementary Science Fair. This certificate is presented to Holden Lawson for Placing Second in the 4th Grade" and it is signed by the Principal!
Maybe Smarty-Pants Holden can teach me to read!

In addition to the honor of taking second, Holden also was awarded a $5 gift card to McDonalds! I think some ICE CREAM may be in our futures!!!!

Way to go Brother! We're all so proud of you!!!

Hey Salinger,
That's awesome that Holden won! I see his project was about breads ... did you get to participate in any of the research? Sampling different breads perhaps?

Yay - go Holden!!

Culinary school! How cool! I've always wanted to go. The retarded thing is that I just got that knife set so I was cutting up a silver dollar pancake with a 10" santuko. It was total overkill and I wasn't paying attention. It was like...swatting a fly with a hammer. I was asking for trouble.

And, tell me about it. I love kids, but I don't know how he handles 23 of them all day long. I really don't!!

Hi Salinger
Give Holden a big lick from Mimi & Pa for his science project. When he comes to visit we will kiss him a lot and maybe ice cream will be in his future in AZ too!
Love Mimi
