Amanda has taken to drawing a lot lately. Her favorite game with Crayons continues to be doing anything but actually drawing with them (lately it’s been lining them up as candles and proclaiming “birt-day cake!”) but she’s drawing more now than ever before, and even attempts to draw her own interpretations of things.

And, yes, I actually requested a shuttle and a firetruck, and that’s what she gave me. Maybe she’s an Abstract Expressionist.
