We spent the day at Eldorado Park today with one of the homeschool groups we belong to. The kids had a great time playing tag, building castles and looking for clams in the little stream that ran through the park. Eamon was overjoyed with his finds - approximately 25 little clams. He stored them in one of our water bottles while he hunted more with a new friend. He equipped the container with some plants and sand. He also was able to find a "sucker fish" to clean the tank. I had to break the news to him that the sucker fish that liked to suck on his finger when he moved it was actually a leech. The whole day has led to much discussion and exploration about the life of clams and leeches.
