For the longest time, Lucas' art file at school was always empty. It secretly broke my heart that he didn't do much drawing, crafting and creating and would rather perfect those gross motor skills. But this past year something changed and Lucas was ready for art. Really really ready. His art file started overflowing and all he wanted to do was draw, cut, color, fuse beads, make books, write letters, words, names. Do you know how happy this makes me? I just love seeing his creative mind explode. He recently started drawing block letters -- I honestly had no idea he could do that but I'm totally in love with them.
Of course, there's still plenty of running, jumping and climbing, but it just melts my heart to see him express himself through art.
Lucas has also been asking me to draw some of his favorite cars so he could color them in.
Lots of pattern making. LOVE that!

We like to make books for friends.
A little apology note from Lucas for some mean words he said to me in anger one day.
