Little Elvis' little people

Little Elvis is not quite 4 1/2. Today, he sat down beside me while I wrote a book review, and started drawing pictures of all of his friends from pre-school last year.

To most people this might not be a big deal, but for Little Elvis it's huge. Little Elvis hates drawing, writing, or doing pretty much anything with a writing instrument. (I believe it's because he's a lefty in a home with two righties.)

But once he started drawing his friends, he didn't stop.

Here he is making his "cheesy" face with all of his drawings. I think they are really good for someone who doesn't like to draw.Here's a scan of two of his favorites -- Electric Man (this is a new character to me) and his best friend from school last year.

That is so neat. I love the photo with the drawings covering the table. I bet they're covering your fridge now!

As a mother of a boy who (also) hasn't shown great interest in drawing, I can imagine how thrilling this is.

I'm always dreaming about going to a restaurant, handing out the crayons, and ten minutes of "drawing time" while we wait for food. Such a situation *would* be nice....
