Our Very Own Picasso

This is my grandson. The only boy. He recently turned seven.
He's got three cowlicks and great toes.

He's all boy.
He loves to work out. Anything physical and he's all for it. Scares the heck out of me sometimes! (Okay... most of the time.)

Boxing. Hey! Where's his helmet and mouth-guard?! (I know he wears it now!!)

His nine year old sister is great at this too. Thin as a rail and strong as an ox.
I made the mistake of letting her punch my palm once!

The boy loooves football!! (And is surely wishing somebody would throw him one already!)

And lets not forget the Jiu Jitsu. He and his sister are both yellow-belts now.

But my favorite 'sport' is when he picks up a pencil and draws!!

I was so excited to see him get a toy, plunk it down on the table, and use it as his model!! Way to go, Dude!!

Love this kid!

And the fact that he likes to draw. Because I am...


He also has a two year old sister, so he's learned to work around her stuff.
Finding peace & quiet is the tricky part!

Here is the finished drawing of "Happy Feet". :)

Then he was on a roll and drew a few more. The kid's surprisingly fast.

Of course, being a seven year old boy, boogers, snot and warts are quite appealing.

These drawings went home with me and are now hanging on my walls. Like all of the other grandbrats' artwork. Good memories!! ~ ~

There are so many things to love!
I love "Followers" and comments too!
Thank you.

    Four out of my five grandbrats are talented that way.
    The fifth one is only two, so the jury's still out on her. She did, however, do a really super job with a black Sharpie, when she drew on a piece of white furniture.

    gradydoctor, so nice to get a comment from you! While visiting this little guy outside of Atlanta, (I'm in CA) we drove by your hospital and I thought one of my grandbrats was born there, but nooo. It sounded familiar, because I read your blog!! :)
    Happy New Year, blog-friend.
