Sunday Sketches - The Flight


This week, the girls and I released our butterflies. Over the past week, we have watched them grow from small caterpillars into beautiful Painted Ladies. It was time to say good bye and let them go.
We carefully opened the "butterfly garden" and one by one released them into the blue sky.They circled around us as we let them fly high above us - waving good bye with their orange speckled wings. You could almost hear them whispering, "Thank You"

With graduations and the school year coming to an end, it's the time of year when we think about flying off into the future...spreading our wings and soaring....saying thank you to those that have helped us prepare for our next flight in this beautiful journey of life....Just like the butterfly! So to all of you soaring and flying this month, I say, "Enjoy the Flight!"



So, today, I am sharing this quick little sketch I did early this morning with my friends 
See you there!
