Pomp and Circumstance

Last weekend my cute niece graduated from SUU, and of course we were there to see her receive her diploma and cheer for her.

Apparently, it affected my little artist (Chloe) very much, because this is the picture she drew yesterday:

As a side note, she was grounded from coloring when she sneakily made it (that is about the only thing that works discipline-wise with her...to take away drawing. She really shapes up when we do). She went and showed it to Joel and he was really excited about it and told her to go show me. Then she whispered, "I can't. I'm not supposed to be coloring."

But she came and showed me anyway, and I was amazed, as I'm sure you are. Then she sheepishly turned in her pencil box, and promised she wouldn't color anymore until she earned it back.

  2. Wow... she's really quite good. Mine is pretty darn good at drawing Tigers though. I should post one. (I think Chloe could still outdraw her though!)

  5. I am surrounded by CUTENESS. Below this post... how cute are you? And I love the hot red glasses. Woot. Woot.

    And second. How cute it that picture from Chloe?

    We ground from coloring here, too.

  6. Wow! Everett has never even tried to draw a person. (I've been wondering if that's normal.)

    Congratulations on the contest!

  9. I was EXACTLY like Chloe when I was her age. And now that I actually grew up to be an artist, I'm still doing drawings at things like graduations.

    It's incurable, I tell you! :)
