Ashley's Speech at State

Ashley participated on speech team this year.  She had so much fun.  Since she is just a 5th grader she was only allowed to do one.  So she chose to do a solo.  They also have duets, chorus, improv., etc.  I anticipate that next year she will do the most she can which I believe is three.  For those not familiar with speech, it is really more "acting" than just standing up and giving a speech.  They have a conference competition and then a state competition.  For those who maybe participated in band solo and ensemble contest as a kid (or has a kid in it), these competitions are very similar.  You are basically competing against yourself.  Ashley scored a first at both Conference and State.  She did an awesome job!
