First off, here is Little Margaux:

Can you tell the difference between the drawing and the picture?  Don’t worry, I couldn’t either.  Man, I was a great drawer in kindergarten.

As I was going through my stuff at home in Delaware before moving out to California last month, I found a lot of stuff that my parents had saved from when I was in kindergarten.  One project was a book that had drawings from everyone in my class.  Here is a sampling of those drawings.  Note the running theme here:

In other news, apparently Jake T. and Jake C. had very different ideas of where our friendship was headed:
