Today I’m thankful for Gavin’s ability to see the world very differently.
Who knows what this kid is going to do in his life, but I’m definitely excited to find out!
At the end of the school year the kids bring home their art projects and we have a great time looking at all of the things they’ve made. Afterwards we put the art into big totes and once in a while go back to look at it again. This year it real hit me how Gavin’s brain is just wired very differently than other people’s and I think in a good way.
The first thing that stuck out can be seen in the picture above. Look closely and you’ll see that he decided to “hide” some diamonds inside the trees of his collage. That wasn’t part of the project, he just thought it up and added it in. Pretty neat idea!
And then there’s this drawing that was selected to be in an art show:
At first it looks a little crazy, but once you start looking closely it is amazing to see the storylines and ideas he built into this. I was going to try to explain it myself, but then realized I should let Gavin explain. Enjoy this short clip of Gavin explaining everything going on in this picture:
Gavin’s ability to see the world differently can be downright exhausting at times, but when I take time to appreciate it I can’t help but get a huge smile on my face and be thankful for his crazy creativity!
