The other day I'd just finished a layout and had all the scraps and bits and pieces lying around on my dining table. So when I saw Julie's post about the Stuck?! bonus sketches this month, and I saw this sketch:
I thought.... hmmmm.... and within an hour I had the bones of this page in front of me:
He's such a funny little thing. The things he comes out with!
Last week he had a casual day at school. The kids had to take a gold coin donation, and the money they raised was going towards an orphanage overseas. I asked Jamie if he knew what an orphanage was and, without going into too many details that might distress a small five year old, we discussed that it was a place where kids lived when they didn't have parents. He thought about that for a while, and then turned to me and asked "so, are they going to be able to buy some parents with the money we give them?". His expression was so earnest and he looked so concerned that maybe the money they were raising might give these kids the wonderful ability to purchase some parents. Nawwww. The way that kid thinks. It warms my heart.
