    Got my oldest daughter (5yo) off the schoolbus yesterday and she was outside with me for a while drawing with sidewalk chalk. I was tinkering on the TW and chatting with her. She was busy drawing the bike (disassembled) piece by piece, and asked me to draw, too. I drew mine in fully assembled form.



    Perspective isn't quite there, and it certainly not to scale, but 5 minutes and a pantleg full of chalk later..







    (the oil spots aren't from the TW! )

    Thats some real talent for a 5 year old. I'm 25 and I still don't think I could draw that well.

    No, no.. I did that one: hers is a pile of parts, as the TW was disassembled at the time.

    5-year olds are quite literal with their art. When I taught kinder one boy was obviously artistically gifted. He drew in colored pencils, from memory, a beautiful 11x17 picture of his grandmother's garden. He worked on it a few minutes every day before school started. As the project progressed over a period of weeks staff and faculty came by to check out the progress. When done with the colorful part of the project, he peeled the paper off a black crayon and rubbed over the entire picture. Being a developmental psychologist, I asked, "Garden at night, uh?" The principal saw the finished work, yanked the kid from the classroom, called his parents, called in the school psychologist, called in the district psychologist, ..., ended up with the terrified kid at Vanderbilt undergoing psycho-analysis. That boy never drew another picture for anyone adult except me--he would draw, color, or paint, share with the class, then destroy the work. If another adult walked in the classroom while he was making art, he'd cover his work and refuse to allow it to be viewed.

    sad story qwerty. but that seems to be how america does it these days. remember, if disney, mtv, or reality tv didn't create it, it's not worthy.. people at work have been obsessed with some daily poll that is trying to determine the "greatest sitcom of all time" - with a poll of about 160 shows or something like that. everyday they ask me if i voted. i always say yes - because i know they would hate my real answer. i dont hardly watch tv or any of those shows. not that i dont appreciate some of them, i just find its the most stupid thing ever to ponder over such a stupid topic. there are 100 better things in my day to enjoy than watching garbage. one being riding the TW!!
