Every Thursday for the last couple of months, some of our children have been painting with a woman from our church, Kathy Andrews. Kathy says she isn't teaching them. They just paint together. I know my kids love Kathy and love painting so it's something they look forward to every week. Well, Kathy is a member of the Fine Arts League of Coleman County and they had an art show that ended today. Kathy encouraged the children to enter their paintings in the show, so they did. Here are the results:
Faith got a second place ribbon in the Jr High division for her painting "Brown Horse"
Clark received an Honorable Mention ribbon (although he at first was offended because he thought it said "Horrible Mention") in the Elementary division for his painting "Lion Won"
Joy got a first place ribbon in the Elementary division for "Loyo the Frog"
Claire received Honorable Mention ribbons in the elementary division for her paintings "Deer" and "Blue". She also won the drawing for a $20 Walmart gift card!
Claire received a third place ribbon in the elementary division for her painting "Horse"
Grace received Honorable Mention ribbons in the Jr High division for her paintings "Puddle" and "Sunset"
Faith received Honorable Mention ribbons in the Jr High division for her paintings "Blue Flower" and "Yellow Sunflower"
News about the house: We have some walls. I tried to take pictures, but all you see is sheetrocked walls that are not yet taped and bedded. Not very interesting pictures, so I won't bother to post them. Instead, enjoy the artwork above.
