Morning Drawings

As many of you know by now, Pete takes after his dad in many ways. Like me, he is our early riser. There's not a lot for a kid to quietly do at 5:00 in the morning. Sometimes, he reads, but most of the books are in his bedroom where his older brother and younger sister are still sleeping.

In India, the downstairs bedroom doubled as the art room, allowing easy access to pads of paper, crayons, and colored pencils. Beginning there, he often would have drawn 50 different renderings of TIE-fighters exploding before six.

I've been having to come in early for work this week. A few minutes after 7:00, Elise sent me an email with the following photo attached, one of Pete's morning drawings:

Wow. Just wow.
