A special day for Kevin

Some time ago, I sketched this page showing my youngest son Kevin's computer corner, but I didn't quite finish the page. Kevin's birthday today reminded me of the unfinished page, and I decided that it is about time that I finish it and post it.

Kevin has been quite interested in computers for some time -- playing computer games etc. When he wanted a more powerful computer for 'gaming' than our family desktop - he set out on a journey to build his own. He surfed the internet for parts, financed his purchases himself, and put it all together. It was a very successful venture for him and he is very happy with his own computer.


Today is Kevin's 16th birthday - another very important family milestone. Happy Birthday Kevin!

Happy birthday to Kevin, and a great job on the sketch, Claire! A very talented family you have there!

Great sketch. There's something about the color combination that's very appealing. Kevin will forever remember the whole process of putting that thing together. For me at his age it was building electronics projects. Fond memories.

Hi Claire, great painting and a perfect way to celebrate Kevin's BD. Aren't our children smart. I bet Keven is proud of you,too.

What a great skill your son has in building a computer! Happy birthday to him as well. And you certainly have the creative ability to record the memory by sketching it!
