what a second grader looks like

As of today, school is out and our summer has officially started. If you ask me, I'll tell you that fall is my favorite season, but in summer, when the pace of life slows down, I feel most like myself, somehow.

After school, Abbott unpacked the bags he came home with and set up a showcase of his work...


This one's my favorite - the self portrait:

I love the end of the year too, but I do love the fall when things gear up again. The Summer is a time to rest and re-charge. My sons last day of being sophomores and tests next week. Time goes so fast and then they are off to college. I wish I had a blog like yours when my sons were younger. I love the way they show us life.

Great work.
It is really wonderful that he is so proud of his work and that you show such interest in him that he wants to do an exhibition for you
