Friday Sprog Blogging: recent drawings of animals.

It's been awhile since the Free-Ride offspring have shared their artwork. Today, we offer some of their drawings of animals.

Cheetahs. Same deal: cute, but deadly.

A horse. She didn't dress herself in that blanket and headband.

From the elder Free-Ride offspring:

A cat in a sushi bar. You will notice, however, that the selection includes non-fishy sushi.
