Ava Thursday: Canada Forever

That's what Ava wanted me to call this drawing: "Canada Forever." Could I be raising a potential canuck?
Of course you all know that I just got back from Ottawa, Canada, this past Monday, and whenever I come back, I always grab some goodies and what-not for the kiddos. And the kids, they love the stickers. Can't go wrong with the stickers. This is what Ava did with her batch (Ezra put his stickers all over Mommy's face, tee hee!)—she converted her Canadian stickers into flags.
At the very bottom there, you can see a tiny girl dreaming of the entire scene. And just above is another girl with pigtails dreaming of Ava standing underneath one of the flags. I swear, I don't know where she comes up with this stuff. She just amazes me daily.
Side note: I want to say that I'm thrilled to see that every single one of you whom I met in Ottawa love Ava Thursday. Since the comments have subsided on my blog in general, it's hard for me to know exactly what people are digging or not. So to be able to talk face to face with some of my readers is a big thrill for me and an even bigger thrill to know that Ava Thursday is everybody's favorite! I couldn't wait to tell Ava this once I got home, and when I did, she smiled the biggest smile I've seen. It was beautiful. Thank you all for checking out my talented daughter's artwork on a weekly basis. Both she and I thank you.
