His passion for drawing continues! Yay! I was sad when the rain washed away the results of his first frenzied huge chalk drawing session, but now that I know he'll keep doing it, it's exciting when he gets his big blank canvas again. Also, it doesn't rain very often. The pictures show his octopus phase, then his 'turtles swimming around a kangaroo'. The next day he woke up and started drawing flying giraffes, which he had just been dreaming about.
She had her first experience with a crayon this morning! She thought it was delicious (luckily it was non-toxic...).
I recently heard a story on Radio National about the neuroscience behind colouring-in for grown-ups. Apparently everyone is doing it, but I'm usually the last to know what everyone is doing! I accidentally bought myself a book of postcards to colour, it's been quite fun!
I have also been inspired to do some of my own drawing while he's doing his. This inspiration is yet to be acted upon, however! It's a nice thought...
