Sophia's "Happy New Year, 2011"

Our nine year-old granddaughter drew this whimsicle happening two days before the New Year.  Perfect for my blog : “Grate Thoughts!”  Sophia’s picture just exudes happiness and hope for 2011.

Granddaughter Sophia, the artist

I was amazed at how much detail Sophia included in her drawing….  how about  the animals blowing those noise-makers.  Did   you notice the tiny mouse  joining the fun?

Sophia definitely inspired me to get back to the drawing board to create new art works.

Her Dr. Suess Hat encourages sharing books with  little kids and taking  time for your own leisure reading.

How did she inspire you?  I look forward to your comments and your wishes for the New Year.

Veterans Day 2010

Remember our Vets

Honor Our Military

Our grandson, Drew enthusiastically painted his version of The American Flag when he was only seven.  Will he maintain his patriotism as an adult?  How will he view the election campaigns as an adult?
