That's my Presley...

I am continually amazed at how creative my 5 year old Presley is! She is learning about the letter Z at preschool & part of her "homework" is to find a picture of something that starts with the letter they are learning and cut it out to take to school. She was beginning to get frustrated that she couldn't find a picture in a magazine that started with the letter Z... so, she sat down at the kitchen table without me knowing about it & came up with this! She created this zebra in less than 10 minutes! She brought it to me and I about fell over. She is very good about adding detail... she put in 2 pink bows, the background, did the legs correctly, etc. God has given her a gift of expressing herself through her creative artistic ability. She has been doing this ever since I can remember. I will have to go back & post some of her early drawings. I couldn't let her take it to school without scanning a copy for myself to keep forever.

Isn't it amazing to see all of the individual talents that God has given all of our children? Each & every precious child has special gifts they have been given and use everyday!
