Evan's bookmark won an award!
We went to the public library main branch today because Evan entered a bookmark contest through his school and his was one of 66 out of 3000+ entries selected! Cool! He was one of only two students picked from his school. Some schools didn't even have any winners. He was fortunate, but he made a pretty good bookmark for a third grader too!




They had pizza and cake and they put a transparency of each bookmark up while that child received their award. All-in-all, it was brief enough to be tolerable for us, and very encouraging to him. His "media teacher," what we used to call a "school librarian," brought him from school and attended as well. Very nice!

They had laminated copies of all the bookmarks on one wall like an art exhibit and had enough copies of the bookmarks for each child's entire school! The librarian said that since she made the announcement about the winners in a morning assembly, kids have been asking for the bookmarks. Evan may become a celebrity for a week or so, which he already believes he is.

YAY! That's sooooo great. The boy is gonna be an artist, I know it! I really hope that this encourages him to draw more because I have heard him say that he can't draw. Well.....we all know that is sooooo not true. I'm so proud!!!!!!

At this point, he's reluctant to consider art. I think it is because he doesn't see that as consistent with his zoologist plan, however, I plan to introduce him to the idea of drawing natures scenes with animals (since that's all he draws anyway) as part of his dream to be a zoologist. Then, too, it could be that he doesn't think he draws well. I'll work on that, too. "You were chosen out of 3000+ entries! HellOOooo!"
