Creative Creature

Liam's artistic and creative talents have really blossomed in the past few weeks. He has really taken to drawing people and creatures - with relatively good anatomic detail. He even draws whole imaginative scenes, such as a man on a map who has to navigate his way through a mob of giant lobsters.

I'm taking advantage of this new interest in drawing by doing a bunch of crafty-type activities with him. Today we colored images of the planets and made the solar system. Yesterday we made a rocket out of various colored shapes. I need to come up with some more space-themed activities for the next week...

Tonight Sean and Liam spent a good 20 minutes practicing writing letters! He was getting pretty good at it. I haven't has as much luck keeping his interest with writing, but I am glad that he can connect with daddy on this. :)
