We are very privileged in our house to be in the presence of a Newbery Award Winner, our own Owen Russell Johnson. Owen has selected with 2 other Kindergarteners in his school as a Newbery Winner for his book that he wrote, "I Went to Disneyland". His handwriting is incredible as well as his writing abilities. I wish I had a scanner so that I could show you all. Owen was very excited to be chosen. The most amazing part of the whole thing was that I was able to attend an assembly in which he was chosen to read his book in front of grades K-3. I thought that he wouldn't want to go in front of all those people and read, but he was amazing. Of course I started crying looking up at him and realizing what a sweet little boy I had. Later Mike, my Mom, and I attended a second assembly in which he was chosen once again to read in front of students and parents. This time I went up with him to hold his book. I was so proud of him.
