Wordless Wednesday: T. Rex Eats Chicago

Ever since The Six-Year-Old adopted Grace Elvis from the Field Museum earlier this year, she has taken her responsibilities as a dinosaur parent very seriously. Things started off a bit rough, what with Grace Elvis’ Super Criminal phase and all, but in The Six-Year-Old’s opinion, all Grace Elvis needs is a bit of proper socialization. You know, walks and time with people, just like you’d do with puppies. As The Six-Year-Old is the world’s expert on Grace Elvis, we’re going along with it. 

Here Grace Elvis is, on a sunny day last week, enjoying a little picnic somewhere along the lake trail at Chicago-By-The-Sea.

About Shala Howell

I spent two decades helping companies like Bell Labs, Juniper Networks, and a genetic testing company that was later acquired by CVS translate some of the world’s most complicated concepts into actionable, understandable English. Now I'm working on a much harder problem -- fostering children’s curiosity and engagement in the scientific, artistic, and linguistic world that surrounds them. The first book in my Caterpickles Parenting Series, What’s That, Mom?, focuses on how to use public art to nurture children’s curiosity in the world around them. My next book will focus on science, and how parents without a science degree can answer their curious child's questions without enrolling in a college level refresher course. In the meantime, you can find me blogging about life with a very curious Eleven-Year-Old at Caterpickles.com, chatting about books and the writing life at BostonWriters.blog, and tweeting about books, writing, science, & things that make me smile at @shalahowell.
