In late August, Julia will have been a part of our family for 2 years. Her first impulse with a crayon was to put it in her mouth. She had no idea of how to hold it or what to do with paper or coloring books. Last October, Julia was still making huge archs of color with pencils, crayons, and paints. To get from that to what she does today, of which the above picture is typical but not her best, is incredible to me. And we have merely provided the tools. It is her perserverence and her vision that guides her.
