Since Alison has been about three months old, I've been fairly faithful about a weekly message of her (and/or my) development. It started out as an email for my mother-in-law so she, in Maine, could track progress of her little Hoosier.
Somewhere along the way Lisa Vielee convinced me to turn it into a blog, and now it's mostly seen on FaceBook. That means, what? 716 or so weekly missives?
Turns out, I should have just waited for 8th Grade graduation. We were given the placemats the kids do each year for use when they have lunch with the principal. His cheatsheet, if a principal is allowed such a thing...
Here, in mostly her own words and art, is Alison Renee Reed K-8.
In 5th grade she had great brand recognition, not just of Angie's List but also Holiday World. I would be remiss as a proud parent to forget she earned high academic honors in each of the four years they track such stuff and won Outstanding Art student at CKS. Not a bad record to start high school.
Crossing all my parts that it continues to be this great.
