So a few weeks ago Shelby's art teacher mentioned that there would be a Valley Art Show and that Shelby should enter. Well Shelby didn't really seem enthused but then a few weeks after that one of her projects came home all framed with another form for us to fill out to enter her art into the show. Okay, we got it. Shelby was to enter her art!
Well we thought nothing else of it. In fact I wasn't even totally clear on what all the art show involved. Was there prizes given? Was the artwork being judged? Well if it was, I was not getting my hopes up because poor Shelby comes from a family of losers. Now I don't mean that in the sense that we are just pathetic people, in fact I like to think we are quite wonderful people! But we don't win anything. Never win on lottery tickets - not even $1! Publishers Clearing house has yet to ring our doorbell with that big huge check in hand...So image my surprise when Chad sends me a text Friday night and said that Shelby had won 3rd place in her category and age group!!
Her art is proudly displayed at the Rocking E feed store in town! Go check it out!
