It's a Bird, It's a Plane, It's an Ichthyosaurus!


Over the years, I’ve showcase artwork my kids have created on my blog.  Then I’ve made fun of it.  In a good-natured way, of course.  I love kid’s artwork!  There was Art 101 and An Author Gets her Start among others.  I have a big box of saved work for each of my kids and I enjoy pulling it out to look at it now and then.

But here’s a piece from yours truly. I’m not sure how old I was when I drew it, but I’m hoping I was only 5 or so.

It’s either the worst drawing of a bird I’ve ever seen, or I had the idea that dolphins (or prehistoric aquatic creatures) could fly.  And clearly I didn’t understand the concept of spatial relations as the Ichthyosaurus seems to be on the inside of my window.

I’m so glad my parents kept a box of my school work!  Do you keep stuff from your kids?  If so, what?  Do you keep everything?  A few select items?  (I keep most artwork and all writing assignments.  For the most part, the plethera of worksheets that comes home daily gets tossed.)

Come follow me over to Facebook. We’ll have coffee and talk. No big whoop.
