Alex has been obsessed with diamonds lately. I’m not sure exactly where he got the idea. Sonic is always searching for emeralds, but Alex is truly focused on diamonds. He is always asking about mine or if he can have one. He wants to know how much they cost and where you get them. Then he asked if we could go to the places (mines) where you dig them. Today he wanted to draw a mermaid with a huge diamond on her finger. He did the basic drawing. Wade added some detail. Teague got the super special job of coloring the diamond – red, by Alex’s request.
