The other day I got a text message from Kaiya, who informed me that she had been home sick from school for the last couple of days. A cold and sore throat, which needs to be taken seriously since she has asthma.
Oh I forgot to tell you, she wrote.
What? I replied.
So there was this publisher. He wanted some pictures that kids drew for his book. He came to our school and asked our art teacher to have 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders draw pieces of Colorado. He then picked out 20 out of the almost 300 kids that drew a picture to be in the book.
And then there was the most important part….I was picked for my art piece to be in the book.
Wow! I asked what she drew.
An eagle flying over the Rocky Mountains.
Needless to say, this nana is more than proud. I promised her I would buy a million copies of the book. I hope I can keep my promise. I can’t wait to see the picture she drew. This special girl always makes me smile…..
Have a good weekend.
