(Nearly) Wordless Wednesday

The secondary title of this post should be "Why I Am Not An Art Teacher".  Considering my husband is an art teacher, you'd think a teensy bit of his talent would have rubbed off on me over these past 10 years.  Isn't that supposed to be a perk of being married??

On one recent afternoon, Kenyon and I sat out on the front porch doing an activity where I would draw an animal.  He'd guess what it was (miraculously, considering the skill level, or lack thereof), and then we'd sound out the letters as I wrote the name.

My first grader eyed the drawings warily and diplomatically said, "You could have drawn a mane on the zebra."  No wonder it looked so weird...


  1. Ha ha! He does look a little bald there. I think the Octopus is missing a leg too. :-)

    But I can't talk. I write like a first grader and can't even draw a decent smiley face.

    Happy WW!

  2. Now I'm no art teacher, but I am very impressed with your art! If I drew a stick figure, someone would look at it and say, "What is that? A pile of sticks?"
