What the heck happens to us as we grow up? We lose our sense of humor, wonder and color, that’s what. When that happens we start using ball point pens and sensible paper. I have this thing with kid’s rooms and checking out their space and how they keep the things they hold dear. My kids share their bedroom and Manon’s side is pasted with drawings and paintings and Shaw’s side is lined with his toy cars sorted by size and space. Both kid’s love to “journal” at night with colored pencils in their notebooks and usually they draw while i read stories. It makes me smile when I walk into another families house and see those similar colorful drawings hanging in our kitchen and bedroom spaces. Here are a few photos I took from the ones hanging in my brother Joe’s farmhouse done by his kids: pure joy.
