A crafty son

Cole got off the bus celebrating yesterday! The school had a fall poster contest, and he won 2nd place for the 2nd & 3rd grade division! Here is the prize-winning entry, for which he received a bag of candy and some bookmarks. :) It's a mixed-media fall festival portrayal: (no, he didn't take that vase in, it's only holding down the edge. Decoratively. And the poster is rain-spattered, creating an unintentional drippy look!)

This week was also Say No to Drugs week at school, whereby our offspring are taught all manner of facts about drugs, alcohol and tobacco. Cole had a few things to say about that, too, and a cartoon to illustrate.

Please notice the cartoon pictorial:

Square 1: fellow has drinks. Square 2: fellow is apparently intoxicated & hospitalized, seeing as how he has "x" eyes (where did he get that from?!) He is being checked out by a nurse. Square 3: The fellow in a hospital bed. Square 4: RIP, and a grieving son placing flowers on the grave.

Do I even need to say anything else?

Tune in next week for a cartoon of a trick or treating bully and the consequences...
