On the second day of kindergarten Miss N pulls me aside and shows me the picture that Connor painted. As we walk to the table of paintings I am trying to guess which was his; the rainbow, the car, or the people in the sunshine? This was a free painting activity, but surely the all blue one can't be in. The one picture that is painted entirely blue. Connor has shown more artistic ability and creativity than covering an entire sheet of paper with blue paint. But Miss N whispers that the blue one is his and giggles. She mentions that he must love the color blue.
On our drive home from school we do our "tell me 3 things that happened today" talk. I ask Connor if he painted and he says yes (the picture was left at school and he didn't see me looking at it). I ask him about his painting. He tells me that at first he drew a sun, then it started to rain and the puddle got all over the paper. Now that makes far more sense than just painting it blue. So here is my sons first painting in kindergarten, its a puddle. [caption id="attachment_482" align="alignnone" width="360" caption="Connor proudly showing off his painting"][/caption]
