Jadzia: newspaper publisher

This week the girls are on spring break, and Wednesday was a big day for the Renaud Empire.

All the kids went with Yoli to Friendship International, where Jadzia and Ludi enjoyed a reunion with their former teachers there.

After Friendship, we high-tailed it to the Botanical Garden, hoping to arrive before noon (while it’s still free to get in). The children’s garden was closed, but we had fun visiting the Japanese Garden, seeing the cherry trees in bloom, feeding the koi, running through the maze, and eating snacks on the grass. At one point Jadzia told me something felt strange on her teeth and wanted to show me, but I was indisposed, chasing the other kids. A while later, she came running up with Yoli to tell me some big news. “My new tooth is coming in!” she exclaimed. I look inside her mouth, and sure enough, a new tooth is starting to poke through. I suppose now would be a good time for the baby teeth to start falling out.

Anyway, this afternoon Jadzia decided to publish her own newspaper announcing this big news. It is surprisingly well-done, with a “photo” and some layout. Click the image below to see the whole thing (two pages).

Maybe she’ll go into the family business! (Assuming the business survives the next decade or so)

    Josh, I am so impressed! She has the basics down cold….top story with big headline…a little suspense in the lead….illustration….plus a secondary headline and story about the maze….a great tab cover and better than some college layouts I have had to critique! This journalism stuff must be in the genes. Like you, I hope the industry survives in some way for her to use these talents if she is so inclined.
