Last week she finished the big wax museum project for school. The students pick someone who has made an impact on the world, researches them, writes a paper and a speech, makes a costume, and then “is” that person for the big wax museum project where they dress in costume and recite their speech for everyone that pushes their button. A big deal for a third grader. (A big deal for a third grader’s mom.)
She choose Georgia O’Keeffe. Appropriate for my artist. And on the morning of the presentation she insisted on making a little name table tent to put next to her own artwork and artist’s palette she also made as props to accompany her for her speech. Singing as she colored away. She did awesome as everyone walked by to see her and listen to her speech that day. So proud of my creative girl.
