It's my niece Katie's birthday.
She is the most intelligent kid I know.
I take credit for it though since I am the one responsible for teaching her father at a very young age!
He, being my little brother, is five years younger than I. When I was that magical age of 8 and I thought I would someday grow up to be a teacher, I forced, I mean encouraged him to sit for hours as my pupil....homework and all!
He actually was a great student. Followed in my footsteps to attend UC Davis and continued on receiving his MBA.
Now, he has a job as a consultant for some "big wig" firm and no one knows exactly what he does.
OK, back to Katie......Along with being so smart she also is a dancer.
So I stitched up this dance bag for her.
Isn't this just the cutest fabric?
So, In honor of Katie, the smartest kid I know, here is some semi interesting information about Lepidoptera's.
("New Word Wednesday" has been moved to Saturday!)
Lepidoptera is an order of insect that includes moths and butterflies. It is one of the most speciose orders in the class Insecta, encompassing moths and the three superfamilies of butterflies, skipper butterflies, and moth-butterflies.
Members of the order are referred to as lepidopterans.
A person who collects or studies this order is referred to as a lepidopterist.
I just like to draw and color them!
I was a Design major!
Happy Birthday Katie!
