I enjoy drawing (scribbling mostly) with the kids when they are in the mood, and there is always one or two that spend most of the hour with a crayon in hand. I decided to draw a picture of Abram, one of my little buddies. Although I'm not particularly talented when it comes to drawing people pictures (just ask Gina...the last one I drew of her she looked like the missing link...sort of ape-ish), I think I did a decent enough job of making it look like him that he actually recognized it as himself. I think he liked it, too, because I folded it up and put it in his front pocket and he took it out to look at it, then carried it around the rest of the time, clutched tightly in his little, slobbery hand. And, when faced with the decision whether to the toy hammer in his hand or the folded paper, he put down the hammer. GASP! That was a tough choice, for as much as he likes that hammer!

Jim and I were scheduled to be in the toddler nursery on Sunday. I love serving in the nursery, especially with Jim. The kiddos really take to his goofy ways!
