An (almost) daily look at our lives in a small town in the Western Foothills of Maine.

This evening we attended a ceremony honoring a few of our local students. 200+ students from the middle school had entered essays about patriotism into a contest sponsored by the VFW. My son wrote the first place winning essay! Now his essay will be reviewed at the state level and then at the national level. I wonder how it will compare. I haven't read it yet. My son is very self-deprecating, so he almost didn't even enter his writing in the contest, and he certainly didn't save a copy to bring home!
