Rainbows and Lightning!
Alyssa is coming over!
Alyssa is a funny girl in my class. She will be in first grade with me. We ride the bus because she lives on the other street near me. Her brother is my friend.
She is coming over right now!
Her mom had to go out so she is coming over til she gets back. Her brother is coming too.
Last year Alyssa sat at my table. I made her this picture.
But I didn't give it to her.
It's rainbows and lightning all together.

If anyone in your circle knits or weaves with wool (or you can learn to knit yourself!), you should ask them if you could try KoolAid or Wilton food coloring dyeing on the wool. It can be really fun, inexpensive, safe, and exciting. You can Google for intructions, there are a lot of sites out there to tell you how.
Other than that, thanks for the picture. I thought it was of a person who was getting out of bed.
Which, y'know, explains the "early morning" posts: they're not at all early for the people making them.
I started to go to art school when I was just older than you (8). I went to a place called the Chautauqua Institution for many, many years. Your Dad can Google it for you, but my point is that when you are just a little older, I bet you can find a place near you where you can spend time in classes working on your art!
