oh yeah!

I meant to post this forever ago, but a while back I was teaching my class so it was just Thomas home with the boys and he went to change Asher's diaper and when he came back to the kitchen Ambrose was drawing this:

all by himself!

He's drawn "people" before of course, but this actually looks like a person!

When I got home that morning and saw his masterpiece I was pleased as punch.

These boys are determined to grow up and there's sadly nothing I can do about it, but happy pieces of progress like this sure make the growing-up-and-not-being-my-sweet-little-babies process way more bearable!

nate and i used to teach the 4-year olds at church, and he still does, but for a while he taught 6-year olds...anyway, we think their drawing is so interesting. a head with arms and legs, even though the head is the tiniest part of the body; it's cool that they know it's the most important. (6-year olds draw differently, though.)

That is very good! Way to go, Ambrose!~

BTW, Aiken's artistic skills already outshine my own...it's very sad that a five year old draws much better than I.

I like it. It reminds me of a hiroglyph (sp?). Does it perchance have long hair...? Sorta looks like it to me....
