another arch


for the Gothic arch challenge this week. The theme picked was for old school. My memories of school are not the greatest and I wasn't the best student. My clearest memories are of wearing the wrong clothes in September when we went back to school. Inevitably you'd go to school in 60 degree weather and came home in 80, but you had dressed for the 60! LOL The wonderful morning light walking to school, the smell of leaves decaying after they'd fallen off the trees. Feeling frustrated when a concept wouldn't click and then the feeling of triumph when it finally did.

I looked at this little guy and I could just see the wheels turning in his head as to what other trouble he could get into when he got out of the corner. He makes me laugh!

I hope you enjoy it
