A major benefit of her going to a school that is only one hour away is that it's easy for me to run up there and spend an afternoon with her from time to time. Yesterday was one of those days. Love getting my Katie fix! I miss her so much and miss having her home. I really miss when she would come home from school in the afternoons and sit at my studio table and we would talk about everyday things; her friends, stuff at school, boys. sigh. Now, we do that via facetime. Thank God for facetime. I can't imagine what it was like for my parents...with long distance phone bills and no cell phones or facebook. Unless something came up, i often only talked to them once a week!
We took it to the gallery where they were collecting the works for the show and when we got there, we found out that two more of her pieces have been selected to be in another spring show at Westwood...the same place her fall show was. I tell you, this girl is going places. We just could not be any prouder. And the thing is...as beautiful as her art is...her heart is even more so.
We grabbed some celebratory lunch. We never run out of things to talk about.
I am blessed. i love you, Katelyn Joy.
