I had a post on facebook a while back about Eli’s self portrait drawing done at school. It’s a pretty accurate drawing, except for the skin color. When I asked him why he made himself black, he corrected me saying, “Mom! I’m not black, I’m dark brown!” If only he had seen his class picture that I had just received finally from the school. A sea of light, medium, dark brown AND black……and a smidge of quite white. Him. Love that boy.
