I love Lucy's artwork.
I honestly cannot get enough of it.
Especially since it has gone from just coloring the whole page black with her fist clenched tight around her marker to going hog-wild on what I like to call "ABC art:"
I love how she labeled her birthday party thank-you notes:
(Especially the "E"s)
And I love that she has started to ask how to spell certain words:
...and that she can do SMILEY FACES:
Lately she has started a series of "dot" drawings.I've always been endeared to my childrens' artwork (I think every mother is). In fact, I wrote up a little poem about it that I stuck in back here.
But as Lucy makes progress there is just something extra in my appreciation of it. It makes me so happy following her only-black stage...that one made me worry just a tad.
As far as Grace's "art" goes, she mostly makes it on the computer with wordle.net these days:
...and she spent many thoughtful hours doing all this stuff for her friend for her birthday a couple weeks ago:
Here's a drawing Claire left on my pillow when I had to leave town last week: (how's that for heart-melter?)
...and I love this one she drew of our Fall Break trip a couple weeks back:
But I have to say the one that still think about is back here.
I adore to see the evolution or art and how it helps express how those little minds work.
