Several weeks ago, the idea struck me that it might be fun if we figured out how to go about entering some of Lexi's art projects in the State Fair of Texas.
Just for fun,
just to see what would happen.
Don't know if you've heard, but the fair is a pretty big deal down here in the great state of Texas.
So big, in fact, that Oprah herself
came to visit back in 2009.
Like she's the Queen of Sheba, or something.
(We made sure to stay AWAY from the fair that day
since it was crazy packed out!!)
Anyway, Lexi loved the idea
so we pursued it.
We got it all registered and taken to the fairgrounds for judging,
and have been WAITING anxiously since the end of July for the results!!
today they came,
in the mail.
She got TENTH place!!
I am so enormously proud of her.
Her first ever entry,
at 12 (almost 13) years old,
and she finishes in the top 10!!!
She amazes me everyday!!
Here is a picture of the piece she entered.
Sorry it's not a great picture.....
I'm not the artist....
