Yesterday morning in church Emily asked for paper an a pen. She likes to "write" during the preaching. (Maybe because she's watched me take notes?) So I pulled a notepad from my bag and a pink ink pen. After several minutes I looked over to see what she was writing. She wasn't. Writing, that is. She was drawing. She was holding her hand in front of the pad, with three fingers in the air, and drawing! I do believe I have an artist on my hands!!
It thrills me every time I see her doing something like this. She is quite talented, even at five. I am going to do all that I can to encourage her to develop this talent (if she desires to do so).
