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!
