You Better Believe

The other night Simon asked me for a pen and some paper.

This is what he drew.

Not tracing.

Looking at a picture and then drawing it.

You better believe there was a whole lot of "Simon, that is so awesome."

I think someone might need his own sketchbook.

    How awesome! Next he'll be drawing characters from books without pictures, or just creating for fun.

    Awesome job there Mr.Simon!! It is so cool as a parent to watch your child's gift become apparent. My girl is 14, has loved drawing forever and is finally feeling the good vibes from teachers and Fellow students when she has finished a project. Seems to mean more coming from them. Maybe because I frame so many here at home to show off!! I can't draw for the life of me... Oh except flowers.. I can draw a mean daisy!! Lol! Keep up the great work Simon!!

    Squeeeee!!! That is such an awesome feeling!

    My little guy suffered an anoxic brain injury a year ago and as we don't know how long he was without oxygen we don't know if/how it affected his brain. So, whenever my little preschooler does stuff like spell out MOVEE TR (movie theater) all on his own, I get that same feeling of joy tinged with hope and relief that I imagine you are feeling right now. :)

    Ali - woa. that's impressive. Isn't it interesting ... what skills 'creep out' of our kids at unexpected moments.
