Reflections Contest

Heather made a new picture for the reflections contest. We almost missed it, Heather skipped school on Monday, so we did not get the take home notes at the beginning of the week. She had to put this together all in one night. I think it turned out neat though. The theme this year is "WOW!". Heather's piece is titled "Nature". The descript is: "A tree that is taller than the world's tallest tower. Almost taller than the stars. wow!. At first she wanted to do a creature from a book she had read that is made up of all mixed up animal parts. We decided not to do it because it would be copying the book. Then she wanted to do a horse because she likes horses, but horses are more of an "awe" than a wow. We were talking while driving around in the car. She looked out the window at the trees, and that is when she came up with her idea.
