Essie had a piece of artwork selected by her teacher to be entered into the Arkansas Young Artists competition...and it was selected! Her artwork will hang in the art center through July and then travel the state for 2 years. They had a reception and reveal for her on May 2nd. I was so excited to get to go...even though I was 38 weeks preggo and contracting quite a bit. They had all kinds of art projects for the kiddos to do and Essie was beyond excited to see her artwork hanging all professionally. She thought every one was there just to see her art! We sure were proud parents!
