My pencil-phobic child just asked me if I would teach him drawing lessons every day! Well, he actually asked for every day at 2:14 PM. He has always been a nut for a schedule!

This borders on the miraculous!

I do know that some boys take a little longer to really get into written expression, but my oldest was so into writing and drawing from such an early age, that I have not been entirely sure how to best handle Cullen. I kept reading to just allow him time. Apparently, that was good advice. In the past two weeks, he has produced at least 50 pages of drawings and lists all on his own.

Can you tell I'm excited?!?

Congratulations! It looks like he has some natural talent for drawing! Maybe there is hope for my son!

how exciting, I love when learning jumps happen naturally! My two boys students age 9 are pencil-phobic, too. I know exactly that which you speak of...
