Middle Daughter has taken a huge interest in birds – she probably knows more about them than I do at this point. Given her imagination, she sees quite a few more than I do, as well. 🙂

A couple of weeks ago, she called our whole family together to do an art show. She welcomed us in to her “gallery”, read her artist’s statement, and then showed us around. I loved that she took the initiative for the whole event. Here is some of her work…

And I asked her if she’d do a drawing of my favorite bird for me…
