Emily is a Winner!

What father doesn't brag about their children?

Emily has been taking art lessons for the last year and has really become very good (if I don't mind saying so myself!)

At the beginning of the year she entered a national competition for homeschooled students. Several weeks ago she was notified that her pencil drawing was 1 of 14 finalists for her age group (she is 15). There were three groups with a total of 520 entries.
Today we received an email that she was awarded 1st prize in her age group. :applause: Needless to say Donna and I are tremendously proud of her.

Here is her entry;

Thanks for letting me brag.

She is a very talented young lady and both you and Donna have lots to be proud of. As a parent of two very talented artists I can say that Emily has a bright future ahead of her in the art community.

We always knew Emily was a winner. Hope this doesn't interfere with her seatcover business. Good going, Emily.

I saw that drawing and another that Emily had done at Cecil's mini-fest and her talent is obviously first rate and surely deserved first place!

Congratulations to her and the proud parents!
