Check this out

Now I might be an infatuated dad, but I've been looking at this boat of Isabelle's for some time, now, and I'll be damned but that boat is coming toward me. It's in 3/4 profile with perspective.

I was somewhat relieved when I found out that she was drawing from another picture, not her imagination, which means we don't have a Mozart-level prodigy on our hands (six year-olds do NOT draw with perspective), but even so, she was able to capture the picture. I'm impressed.

An extended Christmas story

Overheard one morning while Isabelle played with the little wooden creche set:
And then after the angel of the lord appeared to the shepherds, she appeared to the reindeer, and she said, "Guess what? There's going to be a new holiday. And you get to pull the sleigh.
Mix and match, why not? It's an old tradition.
