Two First Place Winners

Both of the girls recently entered the Reflections contest sponsored by the PTA at their Elementary School. The theme this year was "Magic of the Moment". It was really fun to see what the theme represented for them. They both made films. I'll admit that I prompted them to enter the category, since we had done something similar before as a family. However, this time they would have to do it on their own.

In April this year we took a family vacation to San Francisco. While there we went to the Children's Museum Downtown. At the museum your can create clay characters and film your characters in a stop motion film. We ran out of time at the museum and decided to finish our film at the park. The girls really had fun putting together the film with their dad and I.

So here is the film.

Lil Sis created the following film entitled "The Air Balloon". She ended up winning first place, in the Primary grade category.

Big Sis created the following film entitled "Little Garden". She also won first place, in the Intermediate grade category.

We are so proud of them!
