I must do better at scanning and preserving more of the kids' art. Ksenya in particular is always writing something and drawing something.
Most of her art depicts her with either Daddy or Mommy and sometimes the whole family. Her stick figures have really evolved and it's fun to see her "tops" matching Mommy's. I also really love Dad's hair.
Generally there is a sunshine somewhere in the picture which pleases me (except the picture of the tornado she drew which was shockingly accurate). This is Daddy and Kabe sporting mile-wide grins and interesting hairblobs. Note how the colors are always gender appropriate. If there's one thing my girl is completely aware of it is gender.Allow me to explain. We were doing a drawing activity to learn to draw whales. She got frustrated and I told her that practice makes perfect. What followed was this exasperated note. I'll interpret . . . "I hat jrowing whales and practist bu'znt maak prfict". (I hate drawing whales and practice doesn't make perfect). I am so glad she always ends her notes "Love Ksenya" or I might think she was mad at me.
