Jackson's First Art Show

Last night was Jackson's art show. I cried. Yeah, I did. We are so, so, so proud of him. But not just because he was chosen to participate (though we are proud of that - he was the only Kindergartner from his school chosen), but we are proud because he put his heart into something -- quite literally actually -- and made something beautiful from it. We're proud because art is not his favorite subject at school, but he still gives it 100%. We are proud because he had no thought of being accepted into an art show when he created the piece below. He just did it because it came from his heart -- the color, the composition, the feeling. And I cried because he was so proud of what he did. He beamed. We love you Jackson, with all our hearts.
