About 30 years later she gave it back. It looked like a little kid had squished clay in their hand and painted it, then fired it and said it was a bird. Oh boy! That is NOT how I remember that bird looking. Maybe she mistook MY masterpiece for somebody else's? hmmmm. Probably not.
It is fun to watch the Noelles blossom. :) When we made our lungs last month, I noticed how detailed Alli was. They all did really good, but she seemed to have this detail to her work.
Well, the rest of the clay has been sitting there, and this is what she has done in the last HOUR....
Yes, I think she may have some artistic talent there. :)
I think my latest talent is baking gluten free cookies to add to my waist line. :)
Alli declared that everybody has talent in this family! She went on to name Anna's writing ability, Sarah's Dancing, Erika's knitting, mommy's singing and cooking and daddy's fixing things.....
The neat thing about her discovery is that she is seeing that her own talents are HERS and they are OK. She doesn't have to strive to be like everybody else. :) This is BIG for her.
Last year at this time she was trying to convert herself into a clone of Sarah. Today, she is happy to be Alli. :) And we are happy she is seeing that she has much to offer from within herself.
