Last year I wrote a post about how our granddaughter, Ambrynn, had won 3rd place in the Federal Junior Duck Stamp Contest in Florida. If you need a refresher go read this. I’m glad to wait.
Okay. All set for some amazing news?
This year Ambrynn entered a drawing of a pintail in the same contest and she won . . . wait for it . . . FIRST PLACE for her age group, which is 4th through 6th grade.
We are so proud of her! She is a fantastically talented girl, that’s for sure.
As someone who can barely draw a stick figure I am super impressed with her abilities. I love the shading and coloring and attention to detail.
Heather, Ambrynn’s mom, pointed out something interesting when I chatted with her yesterday. It seems that Ambrynn is following a pattern with her wins. In kindergarten she won an honorable mention, in 1st grade, 3rd place, in 2nd grade, 1st place, then in 3rd grade an honorable mention again, in 4th grade she won 3rd place again and now, in 5th grade she has won first place. Pretty cool and amazing when you think that she has won an award every year that she has entered!
It’s hard to be so far away from Ambrynn and her parents, Heather and Brant, but news like this makes us all feel a little closer.
