Saturday Night

So on Saturday evening I wanted to take Liam to the pool to play. Then I got to thinking, I better invite some playmates so he'll be sure to have a blast! I commenced calling everyone in my neighborhood who owns kids. Everyone. The whole ward list. Nobody could give me the answer I wanted. I felt a bit defeated and by the time I made 17 phone calls, I decided we might as well stay home.

Liam thought it was a great idea to go outside and enjoy the mild weather with some paints. We had a really nice evening. I was pretty impressed with his butterflies. He'd draw the body, I'd outline the wings and he'd color the wings with as much symmetry as possible. We did a few more butterflies the next day after church too.

...everyone in the neighborhood who "owns" kids...

You crack me up! :)

Oh, and you've got a very talented artist in your midst. Impressive!

Very impressive! Kaden still mostly scribbles. Occasionally he will surprise me with a centipede or a fish but usually just lots of scribbling. I love Liam's artwork!
