Rachel and I spent the morning in Salt Lake City so she could be presenteted with a commendation from the legislature for the art she entered in the Springville Student Art Show.
"These are the best and brightest of our high school artists in the state of Utah..."said the Senator introducing the group of students to the Utah State Senate today. They were presented in the gallery of the House of Representatives as well. It was all very nice and very much past Rachel's comfort zone! She doesn't feel "talented enough" and doesn't want any fuss made. But her Dad and I are so proud of her and how she has continued to use her talents and pursue her dreams. Here are some photos from the day. Some of them are a bit blurry. I had to zoom and not use a flash!
The House of Representatives first.
The students stood in the Gallery and were applauded.
On the floor of the Senate Chambers...
