Oh my wonder!

"Oh my Wonder!" New phrase, maybe it will be famous someday! :)

I sit here blown away. 1. That my daughter is being mentioned in two separate posts, on the SAME day! And 2. Because she is an artist. A real life, jaw dropping amazing artist! The little girl has been blessed with some talent! Keep in mind, she's 9 years old.

The past 4 weeks, Acilia has been staying after school each Monday partaking in a club. It's a fun little thing her school does. The month of September rolls around, a list of available clubs goes home, the kids choose their top three faves (Acilia was adamant she only was choosing one!) and then they rush to turn them in to the principal on the day they start accepting them. It's first come, first served. It's a fun little hustle and bustle and thankfully both times Acilia has participated, she gets into her first choice. This club takes place on Monday's after school through the month of October

This year it was "Everyone's an artist". Acilia informed me the first week they were painting a canvas, but after that, details were barren. Not for lack of trying on my part, but the fact was, Acilia wanted to surprise her old mom with the finished product and she was tight lipped as to what she was painting. The intensity grew each week and today was the big reveal! She came out with a box, inside was her treasure. She told me I couldn't see it..YET. I was a little perturbed because I was excited to see her hard work, but she was enjoying this little secret so much, I let her have it.

She showed the art to some friends and some parents and some teachers, while still keeping it under wraps to me. We arrived at the car, and I finally asked her to show me! She did and this is what I saw.

Amazing right?? I am blown away! Truly a work of art! 
And just for good measure, I am sharing with you some more pictures of Acilia's creations, she is mostly into drawing, but this canvas has clearly opened another path!


  1. Absolutely incredible! I am always so impressed by people with natural artistic talent, and she obviously has it! Beautiful!

  2. WOW, I say that to all of her drawings but wow!!!


I love to hear what you have to say! Please feel free to post your thoughts!
