My Daughter Was Sick...

Last week my daughter was sick.  Luckily she was not "sick", "sick".  She was sick with the CRAFT BUG!!  While on a trip to our local library she noticed they had an art contest.  The name of the contest was "Splishy Splashy Art Contest". 

They were asked to help celebrate the summer program entitled "Make a Splash READ" They were asked to think about anything dealing with the sea, ocean, beaches, swimming, fun at the pool, etc.  They were allowed to create with any media and could create 3 dimensional art work. 

Marissa entitled her art "Remembering the Ocean".  Living on the coast of Alabama we have to listen and deal with the oil spill on a daily basis.  We bought our first boat earlier this year {instead of taking a honeymoon} to enjoy with the kids all summer, but unfortunately we have not been able to enjoy our boat due to the oil spill.  Our white sandy beaches are brown, wildlife are dying and many families are struggling to pay their bills because they are out of work and businesses are suffering. 

Without further ado here is Marissa's interpretation of "Remembering the Ocean"

Dad and brother decided to get in on the craftiness!
