Each summer, Bug spends a week at Grandma Tyna's house. She had lots of fun this year playing outside in the pool, having picnics, watering flowers and staying up late to catch lightening bugs. At the end of the week, Bug went to the Fireman's festival. Even after missing the parade, she had lots of fun riding rides and eating yummy fries! This is what summer is all about!
Bug put on her best dress and entered the Canal Days Mini Queen Contest. Before the contest, Bug told Mommy & Daddy that it even if she didn't win, she would have fun. What a great attitude! She showed no hesitation getting up in front of a large crowd and being interviewed. Bug had a vibrancy to her with a good tone of voice and confidence. This is how the interview went:
Bug: Hi, my name is *Bug*!
- Bug was patiently waiting to take the stage.
- Making her amazing speech
- Bug with Papaw & Grandma
- Recieving her trophy and flower
- Bug & Bee and Bee's little sister Rissa
The winners were chosen by random drawing of colored flowers. Bug did not win, but she didn't really even notice. Each contestant was given a trophy and a big bag full of goodies. All of the contestants get to ride in the Canal Days parade also. The contest is a great experience for Bug. Shows her confidence in herself and public speaking even at an early age. Bug's Grandma & Papaw came to watch and also Bug's best friend Bee. Everyone is so proud of her!
Bug went bowling for the first time! The ball was heavy for little arms but she did well scoring a 55. Bug was very aware of her surroundings. She was amazed with the ball return and was very conscious of the line. Mommy and Bug only played one game then went home for some nutritious "squishy cheese sammiches" and a movie night.
