Work of Art...

Simply put...
Lexlee is a sweetheart...she's quiet, and graceful, but can play in the mud with the best of them. She doesn't like to be in the spotlight or be the center of attention, she's thoughtful and mothering, but can give attitude like a 13 year old. She's beautiful inside and out, has a mop of gorgeous hair, but would prefer it in just a "pony". Love, love, love this girl!!!

In trying to find a hobby for her...we looked to many different activities. She played on a soccer team a few times, but when the ball rolled towards her, she casually walked in the other direction. She tried many types of dance lessons, ballet, tap, clogging...but really didn't like to perform, and found it kind of boring which of course broke my heart, being that dance was my life! She tried piano lessons, and enjoyed it a bit...but lost interest quickly. She has always loved to draw, and create though so when I saw a sign for art lessons I thought...HA, this is it.
She is taking oil painting, LOVES it and looks very forward to Tuesdays. A few weeks ago she brought home her first painting. She's only 10 years old, but I was sooo proud I cried, and she beamed!!!!

I LOVE this painting!!!! I am having it framed and it will be hung in my kitchen. I think we've found her "hobby". Now if we could just figure out a way to get her to move a little faster...have ya ever known anyone that can take 20 minutes to put shoes on???? She is awesome!!!

Have a fabulous day!!!

Very nice, she definitely has talent!

I searched for something for my almost 16 year old and found that her talent is socializing, she's very good at that!

She sounds so much like Rhiannon...I cannot find something of interest to Rhiannon yet. She loses interest in everything very quickly...and she is so sloooooow like that too!
