Lots of Art

We had the pleasure of attending the gallery opening of the artwork that won the "Gold Key Awards" of the Scholastic Art and Writing Contest. Anna won one Gold and two Silver Keys. The person who had hung the exhibit must have had a sense of humor, for she hanged Anna's painting Temptation above another painting that had just legs and windows. The legs from the painting appear to be William's (in the upper painting).


The girls were amused by the sculptures of heads. This was a self-portrait by another student.

Last night, we watched Anna receive her awards. We are very proud of her accomplishments and are happy for her.

Notes:

The youngest of our chickens that hatched this year firmly declared himself as a male today, and he didn't crow (if you were wondering).

Today: put out a round bale for the bigger horses who seem agitated that the field is nothing but mud. They are happily munching away.

William and I explored the creek today. We found some feathers where something had a midnight snack. We are investigating what bird it might have been. We'll report back.

Winner!

I had an honest drawing and Travis won Cloudia's book. I'll get it in the mail to you on Monday, Travis.

Wonderful painting (with or without the legs)

I can see how that apple in his hand might just break those windows when he innocently throws it to see if it will bounce.

I love the way those legs come out of the above painting. They did have a sense of humor!
