Art, by Nash

wow, can I just Our guy just amazed us last night. First time on Microsoft Paint, and he created this.

He drags the arrow to the color, clicks, says the color, goes up to the "paper" draws, then clicks and fills in and voila! His OT said he learned the click and drag in a week, and I didn't think he was ready yet. Bad momma to underestimate the Nashman!

Wow Nash, that is just very colorful and lots of great shapes.

We love MS paint....and yes Momma,,,,never, ever, ever underestimate your young man!

So Nash,,,,now you have to make a picture for Emma Sage so we can frame it and hang it on her wall [which has the words, IMAGINE, DREAM, BELIEVE] written on it!

Big hugs to Nash from ES & TM

Wow...that is a beautiful picture!!

Our children see the world with such intrinsic beauty, that they are bound to be amazing artists.

We are lucky to have the chance to see the world through their eyes...

Jan, I just wanted you to know that I check in on you and Nash from time to time. Or should I say 'chex' in?

I hope that one day Parker will be able to do the things that Nash is so wonderfully mastering.
