Kid Party (Day One)

Keri left me with the kids for a few days while she travels with her mom and sister to a cousin’s wedding.  The house isn’t quite as clean as I would have thought it would be, but we’re having a great time!

First thing this morning, my daughter asked me to draw with her and paint with her.  I love the graphic arts, but I have to say that it’s been a while since I spent much time drawing freehand.  The good news: it’s kind of like riding a bike – not something you forget how to do.

This was the first one. I drew my son’s lion, and since it looked a little sad, I decided to make it into note to send via MMS to Keri.
We were sitting in my daughter’s closet while we were drawing, and one of her dolls was nearby, so I tried doing a pencil drawing.
After that, my daughter wanted to paint with watercolors, so while my son and daughter painted, I sketched out this drawing on watercolor paper. I’ll probably ruin it tomorrow when I try to paint it.

The rest of the day was filled with Chick-fil-a, Playmobile, folding laundry together, and ice cream.  I love being a dad!

  1. I’d like to report here in the comments that the watercolor painting came out AMAZING but Kyle wouldn’t let me post it anywhere since it didn’t meet his high standards! Babe – I’m so thankful the kiddos have you as a Dad and thankful for your genius artist genes to counteract (and hopefully cancel out!) my stick figure genes in them:)
