OK, after a few warmups that didn't look so hot, here's one that came out pretty decent. So it took more like 1.5 hours...

MFN 15 Year logo?

First draft of the anniversary logo. MFN's tagline is "A Friend to Know...A Place to Grow" so I may add that on somewhere.

17/21: "Climbing!?!"

My younger daughter started up the stairs and luckily I noticed before she went too far. She got all the way to the top pretty easily but hasn't quite figured out how to get down yet, just like a cat up a tree.

As you can probably tell I'm shamelessly using the 21 day challenge as my chance to journal my kids because other than the times when the camera comes out there's practically no record of their daily activities and even fewer words written about them. As I know now from the first one if I don't do this then it will all fly out of "the transom of my mind." =O
