Reflections

halloween dance 014

When I was in Kindergarten, I won first place in the Reflections contest…something I’ve always been very proud of.  I had high hopes that Nate might follow in my footsteps when he had the opportunity to enter the contest this year. 

I bought him a canvas, some paint, and let him “go to” it.  He did a great job and he’s very artistic, in my opinion.  I love his painting and I really thought that he had a shot at winning something.

Much to our dismay, Reflections is not what it once was.  They used to separate the entries by grade so that the students only competed against their own age group.  They don’t do that anymore.  Nate had to compete against 6th graders and needless to say….he is not moving on to the next level.

But….he’s on my top level.  Good Job Nate!!!

    I know! I thought it was pretty obvious that the grass would go on the bottom and the sun and sky at the top! I guess they weren’t paying attention.

    I thought it was beautiful. They should have left it a competition within your own grade level.
