A worm

The other day Gary and I walked the kids to the library. About halfway there they all got really excited about a live earth worm. Nev was the first one to touch it I think. It was slimy. I don't remember that about them... Anyway we let them watch it for a while before moving them along. It was so fun to see their different reactions. Nev would scream with delight when it moved and back away and then come back to it. Zurich would comment on it and make observations not bothering to touch it. Olea listened to us tell things about it and asked where it's head was etc. I had dissected one in 6th or 7th grade and remembered a few things.
Oh, the things kids delight in. Sometimes our knowledge, or what we think we know, we miss the many cool things there are to see and wonder about.
