He is trying to hide his friend’s surprise. Who is his friend? This lovely, little owl perched on a branch.

My youngest son came asking if we could draw with scissors like the Matisse lesson he had at school. When I asked him what we should draw? his response was owls, “like the ones you drew mom!” As I asked what my owl should be holding he quickly answered “a giraffe!” Because he had learned to draw one at school, too.

I love the things that stick and sink in from the learning at school and what he observed. The enthusiasm of new concepts is precious to me. This was an open door to do what I love, with who I love, a win win win situation. Fueled to keep going.
