Fun drawing (by a sprog).

(Not the post title I'd have chosen, but the sprog in question is sitting right next to me.)

The younger Free-Ride offspring likes to draw, and seems to have a fondness for marine mammals. Today, we offer two drawings of otters.

Here's an otter with a sea urchin.


I'm told the otter plans to eat that sea urchin.

This is an entirely different otter (which the younger Free-Ride offspring tells me is the baby of the otter in the first picture), and a dolphin:


I don't know how much of a problem dolphin poo is for otters in general. Arguably, dolphin poo is a problem for *this* otter.

Last week, I noted that the Free-Ride offspring are off kicking it with The Grandparents Who Lurk But Seldom Comment, and that, to ensure that you would not have to endure a Friday without a Sprog Blog, I gave each of the sprogs a book to read during their visit with their grandparents and asked…
This week, while I hunkered down for the start of classes, Dr. Free-Ride's better half took the Free-Ride offspring camping. They camped near Big Sur, which provided ample opportunities to hike near the ocean (and to swim in it). Indeed, on one of these hikes the first day out, they spotted some…
The younger Free-Ride offspring seems to have developed a contrarian streak that's about a kilometer wide. I haven't given up hope that logic might be an effective antidote to it, but some days those heels dig in rather deep ... Younger offspring: There are lots of interesting animals that are…
The younger Free-Ride offspring would like to report on a recent field trip to the Math/Science Nucleus. Younger offspring: What's a nucleus anyway? Dr. Free-Ride: It's what's at the center of things. The cells in your body have nuclei, and so do the atoms that those cells are made of. Younger…

Absolutely brilliant!

Y'know, I took one glance at the first drawing an said, otter with sea urchin. Pretty obvious.

The 'otter and dolphin with poop' drawing was also very obvious. Not sure what the later one means. Any poop issues lately?

No matter what it is ... It is brilliant. I admire children for their the imagination.
