as i do every year, i’ve been working on my kids’ class auction projects. i do a book for both sky’s and ryder’s classes, which includes a portrait, writing and drawing from each child (along with a variety of other photos from the kids and classroom). their school theme this year is ‘growing great minds’. sky’s 4th grade class wrote about ‘if i were famous…’ and ryder’s 2nd grade class wrote about ‘i am special because…’.
this year, i decided to write a poem for their books, based on the school theme…
Read all you can.
Open your mind and…
Never give up or forget to be…
Goodness and kindness will…
Enrich your life.
And feed your soul.
Trust those who are willing to teach you.
Make each day the best.
It takes time, but your hard work will pay off.
Nourish your creativity.
Dream big and…
Surround yourself with people who will lift you higher.
and here’s my two book cover photos (both shot on the school grounds)…
i’m grateful that i can do this for the kids each year, but i sure wish the auction was at a different time of year. a november 3rd auction date makes it super tough!!
