While camping, we came across these interesting shapes in the rocks. They were everywhere. “Fossils! Trilobites!”, Kid shouted, running around in excitement. He studied them for hours without distraction. During campfire, he talked about them intently teaching me how they were formed, and how they used to be very deep on the bottom of the lake. I couldn’t believe that some of these are from millions of years ago, and that our landscape has changed so much that we can now walk along the rocks at the lakefront and find such beautiful relics.
“Check out the horseshoe crab when we get home,” he said “and then you can see how they haven’t changed much at all over the years!” WOW was I really amazed when I googled that later! I vaguely remember him telling me about these things before, but now that I was looking at them, feeling them, experiencing their awesomeness first hand, suddenly he was able to keep my attention. It must be very difficult for Kid to try to teach me anything!
