Embrace Our Differences + Good Fences



Each year, our schools complete art projects and put them on billboards at Riverwalk downtown Bradenton. The subject is Embracing Our Differences....... CLICK HERE for prior post.

the face is made entirely of words

Saturday early AM Bob and I wandered through the park enjoying the art billboards

Helping others


Self reflection, we can't control how other treat us but we can control how we react

If you can dream it and feel it, surely you can be it
We wandered the sidewalks, sat on the bench and enjoyed the art, sunshine, river views and the beautiful trees and discussed how talented the school children are who created these.


Not just fences today, although there are several... Joining TexWisGirl for Good Fence Thursday

What a great display. Now I'm curious. I've never heard you mention "children" before. Were you referring to your dogs?

That's really neat - the Self-reflection quote is so true!

WOW WOW WOW!!! What grades are these kids in? Does it include elementary? Amazing! I sometimes think it takes kids to have a fresh and unique take on things. The cartoons are my favorite, but they are all so good. This would be MY kind of day!!! Awesome!

Don't children take part is some fun and creative projects these days? It's amazing what they can produce when they are given the freedom to do so. Pretty different from when I went to school.
