As you may already know, Ryan started attending preschool this year.  One afternoon, he came home with the assignment to color a picture of himself.  Hmmm... how is he supposed to do that??  But, I put the tray on his wheelchair, put his glasses on him, put the sheet with the person outline on it in front of him, and gave him a green marker.  Much to my surprise, he held on tight to the green marker, put his head down next to his arm and very intentionally colored.  I was very surprised at how long he held on to the green marker and how much he colored the picture.

Later that night, I couldn't wait to show Dwight Ryan's coloring skills.  I'm not sure I would have ever thought to have tried coloring with Ryan.  It's made me realize there are a lot of things I ought to try.  So, below is the picture he created with a little help from Daddy.  Ryan did one of the eyebrows and so Daddy helped him with the rest of the face.  Well, you can probably figure out which lines were done by Daddy and which ones were done by Ryan.

Pretty cool, right?
