A BUSY MORNING AND A PICTURE!'s only 10:30am and it's been a LONG morning. I awoke with a call from my daughter at 7am....she slid her car on black ice and was in the ditch!! She's okay thankfully, car is driveable, but will need work.....she was to open the store she works at this morning and the roads got a bit slippery as she got closer to work, however, the reason we (DH) and I think she slid is that she forgot the keys to open the store and was on her way back here to get them, thus going faster than she should have! We have told her many times before that she has to allow herself extra time in the mornings and also needs to make sure BEFORE she leaves home that she has her keys, etc......she is a wonderful daughter, but has a real problem judging if I seem harsh, sorry, it was just a hectic morning...we are all glad she's okay and she is now at work. I'm in a position right now where I feel very sorry for what happened to her this morning, I know it was a very rough morning for her too, but also I really wish that she would take the time to be responsible enough to make sure she has all keys, uniform, etc....when she leaves the house. Every morning (and I do mean EVERY) I am after her to allow herself the time to get ready for school and BE ready before the bus is pulling up at the driveway!! Boy, I guess I do should harsh....I'm not really, just sometimes it's so hard being a parent when something like this happens and you want to make it all better for your children, yet you know that sometimes, they need to learn from their mistakes. I am 100% sure this would not have happened had she not been in too much of a rush to come back here.

I'd like to show you some photos of a drawing my son did for art class. He had to draw a picture of everything going to one focal point. This is freehand without following a picture!! His teacher asked him to show it to us and I said I wanted a copy!! His teacher now uses the drawing as an example for the grade 10 classes he teaches...and my son is only in grade 9!! Needless to say, he got 100 on this project! LOL....the bad thing, art ends for him this semester, which is in a few days and he won't have it again until next year. I am going to keep trying the TS's to see if I can find a frame for is an unusual size...any other ideas on how to frame it anyone?

What I really like about this....on the sides of the trains me put some "ads"....."Reeses" and "West 49" and "Subway".....some of his favourite things/stores...LOL

I'm not sure what the rest of the day will bring......hopefully no excitment!!!

Take care everyone and have a great weekend!

What a morning you have had. Glad to hear your daughter is o.k. I hate to tell you this, but you never ever stop worrying about them no matter what age they are.

Your son is a very talented young man. This pictures would be nice in a series of frames and mounted in a row on the same wall. They are just beautiful.

Have a great weekend.

I don't think you sound harsh at all. You sound like a normal worried Mom. Raising teenagers is a hard job and people who have children understand where you're coming from. They think their indistructable right now and we know their not so I know that drives me nuts with my son. LOL I'm so glad your daughter was ok. How scarey for you and her both.

Your son's drawings are great. He's a wonderful artist and if he keeps drawing there's no telling where he will go with it. As for the framing of the odd size, you could try to see if you could find a mat for them that's already cut. If you have a Michael's or Hobby Lobby they usually have all different types of sizes of frames. They certainly deserve to be displayed. They are beautiful, he did a great job on them.

I am glad that your daughter is ok. I know what you mean though. My oldest hardly forgot anything. My youngest would forget his head if it wasn't attached. He is awful.
Your son's artwork is awesome. that was my major in school and he should be so proud.
