Is anyone else familiar with the Reflections contest in the elementary schools every year? I entered faithfully from K - 6th grade (and actually won once - but that's another story...) Anyway - Olivia heard about it this year (the theme was "WOW!") and immediately came home and created the most adorable picture ever. She drew six little people on orange post-it notes all wearing different, crazy hats. She titled it "My friends and me all wearing crazy hats to keep the sun off at a beach party" and worked on it for days. Here is the end result at the school art show last week.
She's also branching into literature as well - here is her "spooky" story that she wrote today. Don't her letters look great? I used to have to remind her what each letter looked like when she'd ask me to spell something, and now she can do it all on her own.
And here are the kids in their annual Halloween shirts. I'm just so in love with those smiley little faces!!!
