Rainbow in the Sky


I love this drawing that Josh made… how he colored every inch except for the clouds, the rainbow, the birds.  His style is evolving…

Birthday Card for Caden


When Josh learned that he would be attending a birthday party last week, he immediately said that he wanted to make the birthday card.  He’d asked for a piece of paper “blank on both sides,” –as opposed to the scratch paper we’d usually give him.  He’d asked how to spell ‘Happy Birthday’ and also Caden’s name.  The rest –all the drawings and the signature (Josh & Zoë), –were all his.

Healthy Foods


I don’t know if Josh had been learning all about healthy foods in school or he was just inspired by an episode of Captain Carlos, but he had been going around asking me, Chris, Zoë, and Yaya what healthy foods we like.

Here is the result of his survey.

Christmas Art (1)


Josh wanted to draw some Christmas “decorations.”  After he drew these, I helped him cut them out and put a string on each one so that we could hang them on our Christmas tree.

Christmas Art (2)


These are a couple of Christmas drawings that Josh made at school.




Snowman and Tree

Superhero Badge


Superhero Badge

This is Josh’s Superhero Badge.   After he had drawn the badge, he asked me to cut it out so that he could wear it.  He very reluctantly agreed to let me glue it to a cardboard backing so that it would be a bit sturdier.  He had wanted to wear it to sleep and he had wanted to wear it with all of his shirts!
