My sister gave us a few blank notebooks on one of our visits to South Carolina. I knew we'd be able to put them all to use, I just wasn't sure how we'd use them all at that time. I turned one of them into a "sketch book" on one of the long drives home (when Norah's Nintendo DS was out of a charge and she and I both were desperate to find her something to do). This kept her occupied for at least a few hours and even since we've been home, I will often catch her drawing in it while she has free time. She will draw with markers, crayons and colored pencils elsewhere, but she never uses anything but a pencil in this book. She seems to enjoy the fact that this book is set aside for simple drawings that are just supposed to capture the ideas in her mind. Here are a few of the pictures inside.
