The Art Beat Art Show

So it was on a rainy, very cold day.  The schedule was packed to the max.  (not my favorite type of day).  I got a call from the school nurse that Abigail had a red throat and wasn't feeling well.

I made the pediatrician appointment for later that evening and we went anyway (in the cold rain... did I mention that already).  And so if these pictures look like I should drop my tarabakerphotography website you know why.  I was frazzled, worried about her being sick (and yes we found out she had strep that night)


But Abigail was selected for Art Beat our town-wide art show. And we were proud of her and loved her self portrait.


You know what I love about six year old self portraits? She made herself just the way she thinks of herself.  Check out that hair!!!

1 collage

She brought flowers to her art teacher at the opening night. I love appreciating teachers and going the extra mile for them and Abigail got this sweet thank you note in the mail a few days later.


Another happy memory.
