A Hidden Talent?

This is art work created by Ayden.
.....cliche time.
I know I'm somewhat biased, but I was blown away from this picture. The kid is in kindergarten! I was working my way to a stick man at kindergarten! The use of color, the abstract thing going on, the coloring within the lines....OK so the face is a little distorted but if you look at it with an objective eye....well it's pretty artistic for a kindergartner.
I know....I know...."Proud Father" alert and what father doesn't think his kids art is fantastic....but man I am kind of thinking Ayden has a hidden talent. This is just one in a few that he has brought home. I hope to get the others up to share soon. They are all showing signs of an art talent.
Who knows he could be the first Lawyer/Pro Football Player/Artist in our history!
If Dad has a say that is.........

Parent / Teacher Round 1

We had our first Parent / Teacher Conference yesterday. It went without a hitch. The teacher said Ayden was a fast learner willing and anxious to learn. It was mentioned that Ayden's only hang up was his "rambunctious" behavior at times. His teacher did mention that he has improved as the year as progressed but says he can still work on this behavior at times.

I would say that I was most proud to hear that Ayden is a natual leader. The kids seem to gravitate toward him and he is not easily lead. I have always tried to fortify Ayden being a leader and able to make decisions always being aware of his age and maturity. I feel this is one of the most important triats a person can have just behind honesty and being unselfish. I look forward to continuing to nourish his leadership as well as his willingness to learn.

I'm a very proud, lucky Father.
Your the best son!
