Em’s First Drawing of Daddy

In unpacking for the Beach House I discovered a stack of exercise books with Moo and Em’s old school work from around 2003 to 2005. I have started scanning in the material and came across what would be some of Em’s first drawings of me – her dad Smile

These are all from her 2004 Drawing Journal as a 3 Year Old at Ivanhoe Girls Grammar Early Learning Centre. The resemblance to myself back then is uncanny.

There was also a wonderful one of her mum. I love the attention to detail as she has given her mum hair and me none.

This one is especially sweet as it was for mothers day and depicts Kerrie coming to have lunch with Emily at Kinder. I like how as a 3 year old she has pictured the size difference between herself and her mum.

Another one was of her Nanna which she says she drew after going shopping with her.

I am so glad I kept and have scanned this material as it is a priceless memory of the girls.  It is also great to see how the young mind looks and perceives things through these drawings.
