Remember Thursday night I would be celebrating my birthday?
 My son had forgotten to tell me that it was the opening of the student art show at ASU.
I had to sub all day, but hopped in the car and headed over after school.
This proud Mama couldn't have had a better celebration!

Out of all the art students, 2 were chosen to be "Most Outstanding", and he was one of the two! I was so excited for him! It was a jurored show which meant the pieces were chosen to be in the show by a juror. He had 3 pieces, and received a small scholarship recognition for one of the pieces.

This was the best smile I could get from him. He does not like to be in the spotlight.

First on camera interview.

We had a lite dinner before heading back. So glad that I didn't miss it! Have a wonderful weekend!
