Just Braggin' On The Boy!

I haven't had a chance to post in the past few days (busy with the daycare). Now that I have a day off, it's time to update you with some proud mama braggin'!

About 2 weeks ago, we received a notice from my son's school that his artwork had been chosen to be displayed at a winter art show! This was a huge surprise for everyone, since my son had no idea his had even been submitted.

Thursday night was the big event. It was a nice little gathering of all the student artists as well as the board members and the CEO of the hospital where the art will be displayed. There was  nice little presentation with a slide show of all the artwork, and each student received a certificate to take home as a memento.

After some cookies and juice, it was off to see the displays! This is my son's piece

and him posing with it

He's so proud, can you tell? He even got his photo taken for the local newspaper! He's had such a hard time this year at school with bullying, this honour couldn't have come at a better time. In a few short months he's went from a confident and self assured young man to an insecure little boy because of the way he's treated at school. This definitely helped!

And the art is good too!



  1. Wonderful picture. Would he be interested in selling a print of it? Our oldest son would love it. He packs in to hunt in the mountains.

  2. Wow, he did an awesome job!! I really like that! I like Cheri's idea of selling a print of it. Give him my congrats!

  3. I want to say thank you to both of you for your comments. You've made my son smile from ear to ear! I asked him about selling prints of his work, and after he finished blushing and giggling (LOL!) he said of course! I just need to figure out how to do that for him. :)


Thank you so much for stopping by! I love all your comments and will do my best to respond to each of you. Have a fantastic day!
