Sunshine Supermen

Boy, if I am ever having a gray day, let me be reminded of this. Made for me on Friday by both of my boys, but led entirely by my creative, headstrong Pipapotomus.


This is what these boys wake up in the morning wanting to do (when they're not begging me for Super Mario Brothers). And if a 5 year old's paper sun to brighten the day and a report card note from a 1st grader's art teacher calling him a "gifted art student" doesn't make a mama's heart swell with pride, well I don't know what does. (Almost makes up for said 1st grader's same reports of goof off behaviors and lack of listening skills. AHEM. )


So, little men, keep creating. Something. Every day. And thanks for the sunshine.

I bet your art teacher loves you kid if she took the time to leave you a note. :)

I adore that. And you are exactly right. That would clear any gray day for me too.

Um, sounds like he's a little bored in his regular class. Hence the goof ball behavior. Us artists are usually a little bit goof ballish anyhow. Love his beautiful paper illustrations. Hope you had a happy Valentines Day.

If it's any consolation, I found Dad's early report cards over the weekend, and he had similar commentary (about the attention and diligence, not the creativity). Who knew? I assumed he was born an adult.
