Happy Independence Day Everyone!! (almost)

Getting ready to enjoy a long weekend with the family for the holidays, but also had so much I wanted to share before I went. Unfortunately, time is not my friend any more than Mr Murphy is. So I will say that I am happy and blessed to report the girls both did well in school over the past year. Casey, my oldest daughter, gave me a drawing I wanted to share. Some may see a familiar theme to the cover of a certain new book, Darkness and Light by J.A. Belfield (guest appearance on blog to come in August). That is actually purely coincidental. I named the piece Casey's Dragon.

Nice right? That's my girl :)

I hope you all have a wonderful Independence Day. (even though this post really had nothing to do with the actual celebration of the holiday despite what I named the post) To those of you that visit my blog from outside the US - have a fabulous day from the USA.

I'll marshmallow toast you all from camp. If I ever replace my broken digital camera, I might even share pics one day.


  1. Very nice! Love that drawing! :)

  2. Yep, I can so see how you came to that conclusion, Rebecca--maybe we share similar visions. What a talented daughter you have. You must be real proud. :)
    Happy Independence Day to you. Hope you have a great time at camp.

  3. Proud indeed. I got a few more real nice works she did during the drawing and painting class, but they are a bit large to scan.
    However, I think the one above may be my favorite -- it even inspired a little story I wrote some notes on. Thinking about putting that together just to see the smile on her face when I show it to her.

    Her big brother was always the "artist" in the clan, but I think Casey might just give him a run for his money.

  4. Always think of the Will Smith movie when I hear Independence Day. Mmmm toasted marshmallows.
    Super drawing :-)

  5. Wow! I'm impressed. You've every right to be a proud mamma.

  6. That's right frickin' cool! Get that girl into some graphic design classes. She'll make millions in the comic/movie industry. :)
