You are the seeds of our friendship. Our friendship of seeds will never leave.
You put the sweetness in the watermelon.You do not eat the green part because it ain’t sweet.
When I say WATER, You say Melon!
I am thankful for my friends!
You are sweet like a radish…There are two syllables – rad and dish just as twice hundreds of love you will bring
Our buttery love keeps us together. Our toasty friendship will not burn.
Thank you for being my friend.
Nothing beets having a mom like you.
You are strong like a beet.
You give life like a beet.
You give life to the world, like drums give a beet.
You’re as sweet as pie. Your smile is as nice as creamy pie. Your surprises are as cutting apple pie.

During free time, I spoke to one of the young girls and asked her what she wanted to be when she grew up. She told me she didn’t really know even though she loved to draw.
Really, you draw?
Yeah. I can really draw.
Then draw something for me in my journal.
Give me something to draw.
I went on my phone and pulled down this image from Instagram. (https://www.instagram.com/p/BopR_2zFzi8/)
And she sat there and drew it.
When I saw her work, I was blown away. We spoke more about her career. I showed her different works of art to encourage her and give her some ideas. She was really interested in Cliffanie Forrester, who is a teen from Brooklyn whose painting hangs in the Met.
Finally, she asked me about a career I had never heard about- Textile Technologist- She said she was interested in textiles. We looked it up and spoke about different art mediums and how to mix textiles. I told her about the artist Jackie Peters-Cully who I just learned about at BAM before I went to Mississippi.
