My Girls

The Challenge:


The Sketch


The layout

My Girls


back in July, Dolce and I drove to Valencia to spent a day with Clare while she worked on Campus as an RA.


this girl is something, she not only get a scholarship to study at CalArts, she also works for the school, she gets her room and board free for being an RA so we saved nearly 6K each semester, she got her own room, just like a tiny studio apartment, and she has to work during the summer for the summer camp program for the school and get paid, I am so proud of her.

Thanks for your sweet words my friends, I am feeling a little better. My Son is going to be here soon and he will stay with us for the next 3 months! Too bad the timing just didn't work out so the girls didn't get to meet up with their brother, but Clare will be back sometime soon for a weekend and spend time with Lione, I am forward to more family time.
