During the school year, the questions for me are always what should we make and who's going to create it? I brainstormed with my daughter and son about what would be cool to put up on the windows and they both agreed something from Pokemon would be fantastic.
My daughter, Connolly, studied several pictures/designs and finally decided on Squirtle. She helped pick out the colors for the post-it notes and said she could take it from there.
It turned out to be a huge undertaking! As I was meeting with another teacher, she texted me while working on the window with a picture of just the top of his head.
She explained that the design was going to be rather large...larger than any one character created on our library windows in the past...but she had a plan and thought it would work.
I had no desire to create or change what she had started and said "Go for it!"
So, she did.
(Then there was the search for the dark blue post-its for the outline of Squirtle that ran out the first day... not so easy to find, but we finally did!)

It may indeed be the very best post-it-note art we've ever had at our library! Thanks Connolly for all of your hard work -- it looks amazing! Love you!
