Our little Betsy Ross

The second grade just held their annual "Living Museum" this morning. The kids memorize a pretty lengthy speech(I was impressed!) and give it continuously for an hour in front of their own hand-made backdrop while parents and other elementary students walk through and listen. I was really happy when I found out Aubrey chose Betsy Ross(can't get more patriotic than that!), the woman who made the first American flag. A woman in my ward at church had this beautiful dress and accessories and let me borrow it for this special day(Thank you Nola-it was perfect!). Aubrey did a FANTASTIC job and looked perfect for the part. Here she is! Our own little Betsy...


Here she is laughing with friends after she gave her speech to them. I loved her backdrop with the rocking chair and flag(and even a little needle and thread at the bottom:). She is a great little artist!

Aubrey and her wonderful teacher, Mrs. Hart. We love Mrs. Hart! She is so fun, full of energy and cares about each student. Aubrey is so blessed to have her.


Aubrey and her best friend, Kate(who was Amelia Earhart).
It was a fun morning. All the kids were so cute and did such a great job!

Very cute Aubrey, sounds like a very worthwhile and timely project. And your friend Kate looked like Amelia too. Good job.

Aubrey how fantastic. I'm so excited for you and I know you did an awesome job. I'm so proud of you for choosing Betsy Ross I think she was the best for sure. I especially love your backdrop I think it should be laminated and saved forever. You are a great artist for sure. Ella must be really proud of her big sister. Maybe when we see you again you could tell us your speech. We love you Betsy Ross oops I mean Aubrey Ann. love nana and tata

I bet that was really cool to watch and for them to participate. They will probably never forget that day :)

She makes such a cute Betsy! Next time I visit, I want to hear the speech! :) She's quite the artist, as well. So talented, that Aubrey.

This brings back the memory of fifth grade when I dressed up as Martha Washington.

What fun you have at your house.
Way to make those things happen, Holly.
