We are buried in mountains of paper. Sorry to all you much more ecologically responsible people out there. Our house is blessed with artists. Sweetpea in particular can usually be found drawing something or other. I have ceased trying to count the amount of paper she singlehandedly consumes within a day. I have decided it is a blessing that our children can content themselves with drawing quietly while listening to an audiobook–that they rarely come to me to tell me they are bored or look for me to find something to entertain them. They have truly learned the Charlotte Mason value of “masterly inactivity.”
So today, while Pumpkin made castles out of Bubber, Sweetpea and Sprout drew.
For a long time, Sweetpea bemoaned what she saw as her inability to draw realistically. She definitely has a cartoon-like leaning to most of the things she draws. Here for my first “Virtual Refrigerator” post is the latest drawing by Sweetpea (age 9). Enjoy!
