Last night we got to go to an art reception in which Julia was one of the featured artists. It was a fundraiser for the Lee College ceramics department. Julia had taken a "Kids at College" art class a couple of months ago and got to paint a platter for the fundraiser. Other artists included the other kids in her art class, art majors at Lee College and Lee College faculty and staff. The platters were auctioned off last night. It was very exciting for Julia, who has switched her career ambitions from marine biology to art. You can go to this website, scroll down to #16 and see Julia's platter. It shows a bid for $10 from before the event, but we bid $20 at the event. I hope we got it!
Before the auction, we ate at Someburger, a GREAT locally-owned burger joint, where Jenna acted like a complete nutcase the entire time. An older couple sitting near us mentioned that they had ten grandchildren. Chad said, "You want another one?" The man looked at us without cracking a smile and said "No, thanks."
