I LOVE to color in coloring books - I think it's relaxing and soothing and I REALLY want Luke to enjoy sitting quietly and coloring (preferably for long periods of time - hahahaha). His artistic tendencies lean more toward drawing dozens and dozens of lines as fast as he can with markers. On Sunday night, while I was making dinner (Pioneer Woman's chicken spaghetti - go and make it NOW! It's sooooooooo good! I leave out the cayenne pepper and pimentos), Luke was sitting at the kitchen table drawing lines and when he came to show me his picture I saw that the lines weren't contained to just the paper...

When I asked him how and why he had marker lines all over his face he informed me that he had been measuring his face to see how big it was (not sure what that has to do with markers, but okay) and that his face was six inches long (a bus that we saw on our way home from church that day was also six inches long - hahaha). The masterpiece that he created while pantless (duh!) is proudly displayed on our fridge and thankfully, the masterpiece on his face is long gone :)

  1. I love to color in coloring books too!! It's so soothing! Maybe when we're old and gray, we can sit and color during the day while drinking something warm and pretending it's cold outside?!
