Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo "Chase" Style!

If you are familiar with Rodeos then you are familiar with the Houston Lives.tock Show & Rod.eo. It is a HUGE deal in Texas and a ton of fun to go to. The HLS&R is not just about horses and cowboys and rodeo clowns, it's about education and art and so many wonderful things. Our district participate in the HLS&R art shows and we have students that produce some of the most beautiful and adorable artwork you have ever seen. All kinds of art are entered from sculptures to pictures. This year Chase worked very hard on a art piece that was placed in the show! His piece was a freshly hatched chick inside a bowl. It was not your typical drawing but a more paper on paper. He started with a blue background and cut out a yellow triangle and circle. This served as the chick's head and body. He tore read paper and glued it to a bowl shape that he then put on the paper to make it look like the chick was sitting in it. After that he cut out a bright purple egg to look like the chick had hatched out of it. He was so proud and I thought it was really cute. When we arrived at the show this afternoon he was thrilled to see a beautiful, blue, FIRST PLACE, ribbon on it!!!!! It won't go to the actual HLS&R (those are Best of Show and Gold Ribbons), but in my heart, it was the most adorable one there!!!!

He was so proud!
