He drew this a few weeks ago.
It's a treehouse. That flies (can't you see the wings?). And has walkie-talkies built into it. There were a million other details that he told me about that I can't even remember. There was a whole story related to this flying treehouse, and he fully expected that my dad could help him build it when they visited next ("because Papa can fix everything," Cole said. I gave my dad a heads-up :)). I miss this about teaching, these stories and the details and imagination, so I'm glad to see it in my own kids.
Today, Cole showed me another picture he drew in school. I'll let you guess which one is him. :)
I love it. I love that he defines himself as a redhead. We've always told him how special it is that he has red hair (only 2% of the population and dwindling!). Cole and his three friends from his class here all have walkie-talkies (see the theme? They got an awesome spy kit from Aunt Natalie and Uncle Tim for Christmas :)), and see those little lines above their heads? Those are splinters. We laugh because Cole's hair is so coarse that it literally gives splinters. After cleaning up from a haircut, I have gotten a Cole-hair-splinter twice in my foot or finger. He said that his friends thought it was cool that he had "splintery hair" and they wanted it, too. :)
Would love to hear stories your kids (students or family :)) draw and tell you. If you're on the Facebook page, please post right on the DITW page!
