Answer:  RAISED CHILDREN

(Happy Mother’s Day, everybody!  Today’s Jumble had a lot of interesting elements to it.  No new clue words, but some really great jumbling.  I really liked “enroll”, “creamy”, “driver” and “goalie”.  I almost had to back into “goalie”, but I decided to write out letter combinations instead.  I got it on the eighth try.  I’ve had trouble with this word on the past.  It’s a good thing that I did get it, because I don’t know if I could have solved today’s answer without the L and the I.  The answer letter layout, without those letters, really would have been a tough nut to crack.  I think Jeff went all out on today’s cartoon.  This might be from an older photograph, because his kids are a lot bigger than this now.  But, that is definitely Jeff and Kathy!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(Without knowing, I’d say that this statement has to do with Picasso’s explanation of Cubism.  So many of the Cubist paintings have additional dimensions to them, giving them a feeling of sculpture.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
