The Most Beautiful Place in the World

Ok, I gotta brag because I'm a proud mama and I like living up to my last name! My little man, David Dean Bragg, wrote an essay on the most beautiful place in the world and he won! It was for the Bethesda Literacy Festival and the ceremony is this Saturday where he will stand on stage and read his work.

The entry came home in the homework folder and I asked him if he wanted to do it. "NOOOOOOOOO!" was his response. So I left it on the counter for a week, primarily because I'm lazy and like my piles. Then it disappeared and showed up on the dining room table with a few lines. I could cry with pride not because he won but because he appreciates the most beautiful place in the world - nature. Here it is in all it's glory.

Happy Spring!

Nature By: David Bragg
"Hi, I'm David Bragg and the most beautiful place in the world is nature because there's waterfall's, trees and much much more! The Deer's eyes are so beautiful you'd whant to have them for you self. Frogs tongue's are so sticky, it could probably stick to snow! Oh! My favorite, the Bunny's ears are so big, it could probably hear 40 miles away! I also like the grass becuase it's my favorite coler, green! I love the rain because it makes tiny pudles for you to splash in! The mud, oh the best, it's so sticy, gooey, slymy, and wet! The best place of all natur, the rainbow, it has lot's of colers like, blue, green, (my favorite), red, yellow, and much, much more! I love to see nature because its so beautiful!
