To live content with small means; to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion; to be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not, rich; to listen to stars and birds, babes and sages, with open heart; to study hard; to think quietly, act frankly, talk gently, await occasions, hurry never; in a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common--this is my symphony.

They Won!

Every year the school hosts an art contest. There is an amazing amount of talent within those walls and I am always excited to see what gets turned in. This year was really cool because there was a lot more sculptures. Abby choose to create a mixed media piece using oil pastels and pipe cleaners...when it comes home I'll be sure to take a picture to share with you. Her little flowers turned out really cute.

Emily and Sarah both choose to do photography and before I share their images and how they placed at the show, let me reassure you that I did very little other than a few pointers about remembering to leave enough room for the matting & handing the camera over. Sarah and I brain stormed a little about the concept for hers but she carried it out beautifully on her own. She placed third...
Emily had a very definite plan in mind but it didn't work out quite the way she wanted it to look. So she played around and came up with her image and was really pleased with it...apparently others agreed because she took first place.
Way to go girls!
PS New picture up at 52 Weeks.
