105 Ways to Give a Book

Stong and Happy

So Five Minutes for Mom has a drawing contest for kids sponsored by Yoplait, with the theme “Strong and Happy.” I don’t usually participate in contests or giveaways, but the prize is $1000 for educational pursuits for the winner. As it so happens, my ten-year-old daughter was accepted into an exclusive summer program for young performers at Broadway Artists Alliance, for which we could use the tuition.

Anyway, her picture leans more to the happy than to the strong, but as she says of her and her cousin, “Together we’re strong and happy.” I can’t argue with that.



Five Minutes for Mom will choose finalists and then have a popular vote to determine the winners. If she makes the final group, I’ll be back begging asking for your vote. Because at ten years old doing this, she’s more than ready for formal training.

Ugh. I tried to up the saturation to come closer to the actual picture, but it still looks washed out. Click on it to make it bigger and clearer.
