Mythological Mayhem!

My little sister is a nerd.

I love her to bits, but that is the honest-to-goodness truth!

What other 6th grader do you know has memorized the periodic table and spends her summer vacation teaching herself latin (for fun)?  As her summer vacation drew to a close, my little sister decided to work on a little craft project.  Perler beads are such fun!  But never being content with the standard patterns, she decided to make her own mythological creatures!

First we have a pair of hippocampi or "sea horses." Half horse, half fish!

Here is a hippogriff.  Half horse, half eagle.

Lastly, we have a centaur!  Half horse, half man.
...hmm... but shouldn't we be calling him a hippo-sapien or something?
