Ella's career as an artist

Ella may have career as an artist...she's already bringing in a little bit of money.

She won a $5 gift card to a local coffee shop for her pumpkins.

In early October, our Friday morning co-op sponsored a walk a thon for the homeless. One of the families in our church helps to run the rescue mission in Frederick so our proceeds went to that.

Anyhoo, I forgot to fill out the forms until the night before, and each of us (all 5 of us!) needed our own form. Our street address is kinda long and it was just a lot of writing when I needed to be packing lunches and laying out clothes so I was rushing around.

On the back of the forms was a drawing of a t-shirt and the kids could draw whatever they wanted and come up with their own slogan for next year's shirts.

Well Little Miss did her thang while I was running around like a crazy person. I don't even remember what she drew or what slogan she came up with (maybe Jake helped her??).

She won 3rd prize and a $10 gift card to WalMart. woot!

Now Bill and I have decided to send her out to his mom's house for some lessons. Gam can paint. She can paint flowers, houses, people, you name it. And it's darn good, seriously. So we figure we'll take advantage of this incredible resource and get Ella some art training for free. Gam is also a good cook so Ella will be doubly happy. Now we just need to let Gam know about her new job. :)
