Luke's Coloring Skills

Okay, maybe I'm a bit of a proud Mama, but I couldn't believe how well Luke did today coloring a picture for his cousin Laura. I don't think HE believed how good he did until he was done, in fact! He sadly looked at the picture and said, "I don't want to give this away, Mama, but I know that Laura will be sad if I don't send it to her so I will." He was thrilled when I told him we could take a picture of it on the computer for him to keep...and thankfully, our printer is also a color copier, so he has his OWN copy of his picture! The picture below was what he did in April (giving you an idea of how well he's improved).

Good job, Luke! Now you can color one for Papa and Precious Grandma. Lin, how well I remember the frustration I had when I would see the papers brought home from Arlington Elementary school with "Stay in the lines!" written on the top, while attempting to get one of my sons to color neatly. His comment: I don't have time to stay in the lines!"

I remember kids outlining the picture, then coloring it in. Not me--can't do what everyone else is doing! Luke shows it's possible to color nicely WITHOUT outlining first!
