Quacks and Sparks

This is Mim's painting from this morning. As she explained to her father, "This is a picture of a duck, but some ducks messed it up!"

See the little duck prints? When she was making it she would squash the paintbrush down and say, "Quack, Quack, Quack!"

And yes. She does have a blue Gatorade mustache. She drank one today while we watched her big brother at Sparks-A-Rama. (A Church thing) Zaya's team got second place. He doesn't like second, because he says silver is not a real color. He would prefer bronze or gold. He doesn't really care about the place, just the color. Luckily, no medals were given out, so there was no silver to deal with.

This is Zay with his friend M from church. These little guys have grown up together, since they were born only a few days apart and their mommies are friends.

I love how she said the ducks messed up her picture. Sydney would have been in hysterics, and want a new paper. You are lucky she has such a great imagination. (Not that Syd doesn't...she is just a little dramatic)

I like the way Mim is sitting...reminds me of another little girl. Maybe if we showed Zaya the sparkle silver fabric paint he would see silver as a color.

Lovely artwork. I should have some more pics of the group and one of Zaya with the bean bag on his head. ...not sure when though.
