Charity's Art

Tonight, we got to go to an ART SHOW! After gymnastics, dinner and baseball practice, we ran over to the career institute in Frisco and it was a ZOO. All the local schools sent over artwork to be displayed. It was kindof cool to see the different kid artwork - some of it (by the middle schoolers) was quite good. The best, however was over in the Tadlock Elementary section. Apparently, they selected about 5 student's art from each grade to display... Charity was one of them! She was so proud. I asked the teacher how they selected them (It had to be random for the Kindergarteners - right?) but the teacher said they actually "chose" them... Joe thinks it is because Charity is just so gosh darn cute that everything she does is "art show" worthy. ;)
Anyways, way to go Charity! Way to draw mountains with chalk!

interesting piece of information about me: When I was in college, I really REALLY wanted a tatoo. However, I knew if I was going to have something painted on me FOREVER, I really wanted it to be symbolic of me and my philosophies on life (not just some generic tribal or random pic). I wanted to get the tatoo of mountains. I drew and drew and looked and searched, but the only picture that would do justice to how I felt about mountains would seriously take up my whole back (not just the tiny 1" area I wanted it)... Needless to say, I never got the tatoo. I just thought it was interesting looking at my daughter's rendition of mountains. If I had a 5 yr old back then, something like this might have ended up painted on me!

Joe is right, Charity is so cute!

I want a tatoo too! I want a tiny honeybee on my pelvis (get it? A "b" for Bart?) The other one I want is the word "true" on the back of my neck. Alas, it will never happen. My hubby is far too straight laced and will not allow it!

Em you crack me up!! Where was I when you were thinking about this mountainous tat? I could have drawn up a great one and you could have thought of me daily :) Glad you kept it clean and went with the tat of Jim Morrison under your left... I mean never mind. They still don't know about that do they? :)

That really is great artwork for a kindergarten student. She didn't leave any white space and there's even some perspective!
