This is Wallene's project for genetics in her science class. I know! I wondered what dragons had to do with genetics too! The teacher thought that to make it fun for the kids she would put the students in pairs and each one had to make a dragon with certain genetic qualities and then after they were "mated" the kids had figure out the probability of certain traits in the dragon babies from each dragon parent.
The reason I think this guy is so cute [and worthy of an A+] is the dragon was supposed to be made out of construction paper and markers, but seems Wallene had grandiose plans and wanted to make a 3-D clay model of her "Sparky". She spent four hours today putting this together - the grass is clay pressed through a garlic press and for a little comic relief she had him set the grass on fire and added a fish pond. :D
In other Mommy blogger news [yawn] my nice husband went to the library yesterday and brought me home a gazillion books including two low sodium cookbooks [yum!] and he went to the craft store and bought me a latch hook rug kit so I don't lose my mind while I am still on bedrest. It is a really pretty throw rug size with a lighthouse on it. It is very relaxing and I am so glad because everyone is back to school tomorrow. :( I figure I should have the rug done by Friday at this rate. heehee.
Hope everyone has a great week!
