Daughter’s Birthday

Guided by a naturalist (not a naturist), we walked through the rain and looked at slime in a dank Minnesota marsh.  There were snails and bug larvae and tiny creatures related to shrimp.  The third-grade girls at the party were seriously psyched to be digging around in the muck.  I enjoyed it, too.  Likely these girls, smart all of them, will go through a large portion of their lives when muck digging is of no interest (or is actually repugnant to them).  I hope not.  What a waste of time (I spent easily twenty years missing out).
