The other day I gave my son Jackson a sketchbook and a red pen. He’s at that age where he really likes to draw and he’s often asked me about the sketchbook I carry around, so i thought giving him is own book might be a fun gift. I explained to him that he could draw and/or write anything in the book that he wanted… that it was his book to do with what he pleased.
Apparently this gift made quite the impression on him as he’s taken it to school with him every day. Each night he shows me his days’ work. When my wife went to pick him up from school yesterday, she found him drawing horses with a bunch of classmates gathered around watching. Can’t say it doesn’t bring a smile to my face when I think about it.
