I spent the last 5 days in Columbus, OH seeing dear friends! We lived in Columbus from 1993 to 1999. It was a truly important 6 years in our lives in so many ways. I love when I get to go back and reconnect with such significant and influential people in my life. I spent time with my two closest friends - Aimee and Ann. I got to see a lot of other wonderful people from my time there. I got to laugh a lot, share what God is doing in my life and hear what He is doing in the lives of others. What a treasured time!
I've also been busy painting up at Hamilton Elementary. Here are three projects that I have been working on.
I was asked to paint this picture of Carl Sagan in the Science Lab. Not really one of my favorite quotes . . . but I will say that if we are made of starstuff -- God still made the starstuff :-)
My favorite comments by students are:
You are doing such a good job!
Wow - you are really good at staying in the lines!
Finally, one of the truly fun projects -- Just follow the elephant out the exit door in case of fire!
Mr. Gray, the principal at Hamilton, loves this quote. He has literally turned this school around in the last 5 years - so I can see why he likes it! It describes his approach to transforming this school!
Between spending time with lots of wonderful women, traveling, painting and holding babies - the writing seems to have dropped down in priority, but I'm pretty sure that is exactly how it has needed to be.
Have a wonderful week and bloom where you are planted!
