Valentine's Day Outfit

Sometimes, when you have two boys who would rather wear dri-fit shorts and shirts EVERY SINGLE DAY, you forget about ever dolling up your kids. But I made sure to make Camden feel special this Valentine's Day. She was so excited when we got this outfit, and she told me she couldn't wait to wear it so she "could be the prettiest girl in school!" I'll have to admit, I was excited, too! I got her a cute pair of pink Converse All-Stars to go with the outfit, but they were too big. And note the cute Valentine colored bow in her hair-----I ordered it from Leia! Thanks...she loves the bow, too! Happy Early Valentine's Day, everyone!!!

My Budding Artist

I never thought this would ever happen, so it makes me so proud to share that Brooks' artwork is currently being displayed at the Florida Natural History Museum. He was excited to come home and tell me that his teacher had chosen his work, and I was excited to go and check it out! The assignment was to paint a picture of the everglades. He described his work as inspired by "Whoville" from the Grinch Who Stole Christmas. I think he was right on! I'm sure you will be proud, Mrs. Whiteley!
