The style morphed from flowers to animals, and some days they get so excited that we end up having three suns. New planet with a tri-solar system, perhaps? There’s a lot of creativity in their fourth grade minds, so I wouldn’t discount it. But more than likely, three kids wanted to draw the sun and none would give in to the others.
