My daughter is going into 2nd grade this year. She is so talented when it comes to art. I always look forward to the art projects that she brings home. I guess she got her talent from me. I went to college for art and received a BFA. I think my daughter will really go far in life with her skills. She wants to be a baker when she grows up. I bet her cakes and other creations will blow my mind!
