Josiah's Artwork

Recently, Josiah has really become interested in drawing a lot more. At the beginning of the school year, it was like pulling teeth to get him to draw and now he is just taking off with it! This picture he drew quite a while ago when we did some themed lessons on families. He even drew his animals (fish--Herman and Goldie and Echo our dog).

He has informed me that this is a contruction site and that they are building a pond (bottom left). We recently got this GREAT drawing book for kids by Ed Emberley called "Make a World" and it has these very easy step by step "shape-related" drawings to create. I didn't really have to explain how to do it to Josiah and it was super easy for him to follow on his own.

The last two are more creations that he drew on the white board and he wanted me to take pictures of them! As you can see there are more construction vehicles here as well.

This is a railroad scene with a factory and a couple of helicopters.

His drawing is quite impressive Heather! I loved looking at photos of Naomi's 1st birthday....I can't believe a year has already passed!
