A visit by Inverloch Beach Kinder

My favourite conversation -
Master 4 - "Why are dinosaurs so big?"
Wendy - "That's a good question. Rhinos are big. Why do you think Rhinos are so big?"
Master 4 - "Because they are animals!"
Wendy - "Well, dinosaurs were animals too"
Master 4 - "So, why is T. rex so big?
Ruairidh - "Because they ate big animals"
A lovely bunch of kids. Fun.
