In February, June's 5th grade class wrote a paper and gave a presentation on a significant historical figure. June, I mean Queen Elizabeth, went all out, as usual. She wrote a terrific paper about the life of this strong-willed woman who ruled England without a king at her side. I doubt anyone else dressed up this elaborately, but June's a bit of an overachiever and her mom had too much fun putting the costume together.
I'm happy to say she received a perfect score on her presentation and her paper! Plus, she memorized Queen Elizabeth's speech that fired up her troops at Tilbury as they went into battle against the Spanish Armada. She not only recited it word for word and with strong conviction, but also delivered it in a spot-on British accent. This girl is a star!!!
