For years I have been telling my husband that we should have our family portrait taken by a professional. I thought that would be wonderful. But life is busy and we just couldn't get around to scheduling a photo shoot. Come to think of it, our family is really just a "candid shots" kind of family. Our photos are best when taken in action, not posed.
The digital drawing above was created by my son when he was in Grade 1. One day when I went to their school to volunteer, their computer teacher came up to me and said that she's got the best "portrait" of our family drawn by G. This computer teacher asked all the students in the school (hundreds of them) to draw their family. My son is the only one who drew a family all holding each other. She thought that was pretty neat. I thought so too. It reminds me of the phrase in Lilo and Stitch movie when the said "Ohana means family, and in our family no one is left behind".
Family is the prompt for this week's Sunday Scribblings. Go there for more.
