Exciting news for dd10!!

We recently found out that DD10's artwork of the Phantom Stallion that won her a very nice Weaver Leather headstall late last year is the March / April issue of Young Rider!     (See old blog entry for details and pictures.)  It was just released, so run out and buy it! LOL.  I bought four more tonight, addition to our subscription one. 

Then, tonight, we received this:
Thank you for entering Save Our Wild Salmon’s first ever youth art contest. We appreciate all of your hard work to protect and restore wild Pacific salmon — keep it up!
We had an overwhelming response of more than 300 entries. Many of the pieces were truly excellent and we were faced with the difficult decision to pick only 18 of the strongest pieces. I am excited to inform you that your entry will be on display in Washington, D.C. this June and featured in the Save Our Wild Salmon calendar!
We are still working out the details and selecting the top three entries. I will contact you as soon as we make our final decisions. Thank you so much for your continued patience!
Please visit for the link to view all of the entries online. Thank you again for your time and creativity. I will be in touch soon!

WOW!  :happy tears:

\o/ I praise God that He led me to homeschool and that He provided a local artist willing take on a young one three and half years ago!!! It is so awesome to be able to allow her to develop that talent!

(See another old blog entry to see the picture of the salmon she drew.)

  1. Oh, that is just wonderful news! The salmon picture is just marvelous, I really liked the colors on the fish. Great job! Does she draw a lot in her spare time?

    Art is one more reason to love homeschooling. Breezy went to public school til half way through 1st grade. Her teachers were very troubled with her constant doodling and decorating her papers. It was a problem for them but not for me. :) Funny thing is her K-teacher now homeschools her children. I love it.
