Full Ride Art Scholarship! Um, no.

January 30, 2013


Deborah called last night and asked if she and Bethany could come over because Bethany wanted to bring a picture she made for me.

Side note: Think ill of me all you want, but Bethany is my goddaughter and Brittney is my niece, and Every Single Time I write their names, I worry that I’m doing it wrong. Even now as I type this, I’m thinking, “Is it ‘any’ or ‘ney’?” People with decent spelling skills don’t have this kind of trouble.

Anyway, the girls came over after supper and Bethany handed me this:

Awww.... I really like it!

I freaked out! “What the what?!?!” This was far beyond what I was expecting – pencil sketching of kittens and foliage?? (You might want to remember my own drawing skills for comparison purposes.)

Deborah recognized the shock and was quick to say, “She colored it for you. Colored it.”

Whew. I am grateful for that, because otherwise I would be obligated as Godmother to put that girl through art school.

It's bone fide.

Still might.
