Naomi's Colouring Recital

When Naomi Martin was 3, she declared, "Mommy, I'm going to have a colouring recital."  When her mother, Sarah Martin, asked her what a colouring recital was, Naomi's response was simple.  "A colouring recital is where everyone can come and see how good I can colour."  Her mother dismissed the idea as cute, but over the next several months, Naomi and her 5 year-old sister, Abigail had it all figured out.
