Each year the school has an art contest and it really is fun to see what all of the kids, not just my own, come up with.
Claire entered her autumn collage she made in class at the beginning of the year. It really is lovely and she was so proud of it! I was rather proud of myself for not loosing it since she brought it home in December. I sort of have a reputation for putting things somewhere "safe" and then not remembering where the "safe" place is.
The other three usually enter the photography portion...no surprise there I guess but I do not do much more than hand over my camera. I have a hallway that I think is going to become a gallery space for their pictures. They're pretty good.
Abby actually one second place for her age division! I really liked it's homey, almost folk arty look.
Sam also took a picture of Milo, who was being more cooperative as a model than Tom. Which is a bummer because Sam was hoping to enter a picture of Tom, whom the kids enjoy calling Tubby Tubs, so that the school would announce that the winner is Tubby Tubs which they find to be hysterically funny for some reason.
Although Tom Tubby Tubs didn't have his picture entered into the contest Sam did, in fact win. He actually won first place and we were told that his smile was huge and his happiness with that honor was quite visible.
Emily didn't place this year but she did put in two images. One she took when she second shot a wedding with me and a neat macro shot.
I really enjoy a good macro shot and this one up close and personal of a push pin is fun.
They all did great and we're looking forward to being creative this summer. Only two weeks left!
