My lovely eldest daughter did us proud this week as parents. A science project poster she entered at school was selected as a finalist for the 'Franklin Rotary Science & Technology Exhibition for 2014' in the Year 8 category.
We went along prior to the prize giving to see all the exhibits. There are some very talented young teenagers out there.
Now us Kiwi's are known for being modest about our achievements....she didn't want me to photograph her while her friends were looking....can you tell????
That's her poster presentation about 'Electric cars for the common good' behind that shy smile.
Then her name got called out as an award winner and she had to go all the way up to the stage....
Proud, we sure were....joint second place....Well Done!
Now there is also another member of my extended family who has achieved good things of late. My youngest sister, who has recently relocated back to the USA to the San Francisco area, has her own art exhibition opening soon at Raw Artists and I couldn't be happier for her. She is an amazing artist with the palette knife and recognition for following her passion as an artist and for her art is really cool.
Check out her gallery at Saatchi Art
Well done Sis
