|Keegan, myself and Quinn|
First, gather the supplies (paper and oil pastels). Second, gather the troops -- two little boys who like to do crafts but it has got to be the right project. So our project for the day was to draw self-portraits.
I enjoyed seeing how our image of ourselves manifested itself on each piece of paper. Keegan didn't veer far from reality, even to the green shirt he was wearing. Quinn is not blonde but he thinks he is. He does have much lighter brown hair than Keegan and I. I may have once compared his hair to his father's who had blonde hair when he was just a little guy. Hence, he always draws himself with blonde hair. Pretty cute. I think I stayed true except for one thing. Do you see that light dusting of freckles on my nose? I may actually have more freckles than that. In fact, as I was adding the freckles, Quinnie said, "Don't forget the freckles on your neck, Mommy." I chose to include just a few across the bridge of my nose.
