Little artist

Isaac thinks coloring is okay. He'll get in a groove and color a bunch. But only if he has the right picture. Or a blank paper and a good inspiration.

And if it isn't a Superhero ... forget it.

Sidge basically hates to color. If I ask him to color for school work he'll sigh and say, "Coloring makes me soooo tired."

(And Hannah -- well, I'm sure all she knows how to do is eat crayons.)

But Abigail? This little chick L-O-V-E-S to color.

Recently she has started asking for blank paper so she can actually draw. 

Notice her little princesses set up on the left -- these are her inspiration.

And here is the finished product: Four princesses. Supposedly one is Mulan and one is Jasmine. Not sure how that can be when there are three blondes. I also couldn't ascertain why one has a gray face, but hey, I'm not picky.

Now I roll my eyes (inside at least) every time I hear a parent rave about how brilliant their child is. I mean, really, aren't most kids basically the same? But I do think that Abigail's drawing seems a little bit advanced for a three-year-old. But just a little bit. And I'm not writing her a ticket to art school yet or anything.

But mannnn is it fun to watch your kids develop their own personal likes and dislikes and gifts. Daddy is an artist so who knows what skills she inherited ...

... from him of course.

I love when children draw creatively! Sure, colouring books are good for pre-letterwrittting learning, but free drawing is so much better for the child and WAY more educational! And the stories that come along with this creative drawing are terrific.
