Blue Monday....remembering when!

Sally of Smiling Sally is hosting a Blue Monday event. She has invited anyone who would like to join in to do so! In honor of my first Blue Monday I am posting pictures of Tim's first day of school.

In September 2004 he began kindergarten. This picture was his first self portrait. Notice the stunning blue eyes! They match his shirt! Isn't he cute???? I saved a big tote of his kindergarten projects. Through the years what I save has gotten fewer and fewer.


This picture was taken on Tim's first day of kindergarten. In just two days he'll be starting fourth grade. My oh my the times goes quickly. This is Tim and I in my classroom right before the start of the day. We both were wearing blue! Now, when he stands next to me he comes up to my nose!!! I don't have to kneel down next to him.

Remember each time you comment between now and Friday night you will get your name in a drawing to win a market bag. Nola asked about the pattern. It's a free download from Knit Picks and you can find it here. It's called Mary's Summer bag. The download link is near the bottom.

Take care,
Dawn

Hi Dawn! Love both the portraits! I think you have an artist in the family. Wishing you a wonder filled Blue Monday!

Hi Dawn,
That self portrain is adorable!

It is frame worthy!

I'm thinking of doing something with a few works of my kids art...maybe enlarging them at Walgreens and shopping for thrift shop frames to paint.
We have a space in our bonus room, and your picture motivates me!
Have a great one!

You had quite an artistic son at that age! He is a doll. Happy 300th post!

Beverly said...

You and Timmy are too cute. You'll never be able to deny he is yours - you look so much alike.

Happy Blue Monday. When do you go back to school?

Dawn , that little picture is so cute !

Charli and me said...

Hi Dawn,
I just love your blue monday post.
That picture is so sweet. Don't they grow up fast! It seems like just yesterday my three sons were little boys and now they are grown men.

Elizabeth said...

I'm just "meeting" you through Blue Mondays. I live in MA, too!
A good way to preserve your child's art is to take pictures of it before you toss it. I wish my mom had done that, all of my paper things have fallen apart.
See you next week!

Oh my, Dawn, he really has grown!

His self-portrait is darling! Wonder how he would draw himself now...much taller for one thing, huh? :)
