“If a child is to keep alive his inborn sense of wonder without any such gift from the fairies, he needs the companionship of at least one adult who can share it, rediscovering with him the joy, excitement and mystery of the world we live in." - Rachel Carson

Family Portrait

The artist at work
This week Rowan drew her first family portrait of all of us, and I was so excited to see the emergence of cute, amoeba-like people with legs coming out of their heads and big googly eyes. It is so cool to watch the evolution of drawing skills as your child's motor skills develop. She was very proud of her creation and we framed it right away and hung it in "Rowan's Art Gallery," a new designated wall in the stairwell where her masterpieces are now on display!

Proud of her creation

The finished product: Aaron, Rowan in the middle, and me holding Retta. Wendell the cat is underneath Aaron's feet, and then of course, an artist always signs her work.
