Another artist in the making

Lately, Eleanor spends most of her time drawing. She draws people and then she wants me to cut them out for her, like she wants me to do right now. Here is a video of her drawing in her usual spot at the table. At the beginning of the video, she realizes I have the camera and says, "Can I see?" She loves to see the pictures on our camera after I take them.

Here is one of Eleanor's creations. I love how her girl has eyebrows. She is showing signs of having her dad's artistic abilities.

Emily had her 5 year doctor's appointment yesterday. She is healthy, tall, and thin. She had 2 shots, which she did not like at all, but who does? She fought getting the shots and she cried for awhile when it was over. But she was feeling a lot better when we went to get ice cream. Emily was all done her ice cream when I got out the camera, but here's Eleanor and Zoe enjoying their treat.

Zoe finished her basketball camp this morning and then Zoe and Emily finished their first session of swim lessons. Zoe will repeat her class again. She needs to improve on her head bobs and doing the crawl stroke with rhythmic breathing without a kickboard before she passes onto the next level. Emily passed her class so she will be in Beginner 2 for the next session. She is very proud of her achievement.

I love videos in blogs! I think it's so fun. I'm impressed with her drawings. She's lightyears ahead of K and his random lines thrown onto paper.

Your kids are so cute. I love watching my girls draw, too. My step-son is an amazing artist....he gets it from his biological mother.

You guys are having a busy summer, huh?

I love it when the grandkids want to see the picture immediately in the digital camera after they are shot. They don't get it when it's the old-fashioned kind and they can't have that instant gratification.

Isn't it wonderful when they grow and achieve and progress? I loved every stage of my kids growing up years. Your girls are Darling!
