A Winning Design!

The local library held a bookmark design contest for March being reading month.  The kids were to draw a favorite character from a book and enter their design in their age division.   Each class at school was also able to enter, as long as the teacher wanted to, and one winner would be chosen from that class as well.  (Morgan's class did it, so she was able to enter twice!)   Anyway, Blake had the winning bookmark design for his age division!!
 
The prize was that his design would be made into bookmarks that anyone can pick up at the library.  We got the call that he won on Wednesday but it was going to be a few days before the bookmarks would be made up...we checked in Friday and they were done!
 Morgan had drawn 'The Cat in the Hat' for her age division entry, so Blake went with a 'Thing'.  He drew it and then he seemed to be done, so I asked if he wanted to write anything on it, like maybe "Reading is Fun!" or "Reading is a Fun 'Thing'".  That little guy immediately said "Reading is a Fun Thing To".  Apparently I'm kinda slow and didn't know why he stopped at 'to', so, kinda confused, I said how about "Reading is a Fun Thing to Do"....then it hit me, he meant 'Thing 2'!  LOL!  That made so much more sense!  Anyway, this is how it came out:
I never thought to get pictures of Morgan's designs before she turned them in.  I don't think they'll be getting them back now. :-/  Morgan was able to grab her best friend's winning bookmark and another that had drawn an 'American Girl', though.  They all did such a great job and, most importantly, they had a lot of fun creating them! :-)

He is amazing! I love it, and totally not surprised he won. His talent (and humor) are amazing for his age. He's got great things ahead of him, I know it!
