it was science day

we made

solutions and color swirls

learned about buoyancy

floated and sunk things

then

we met

two big horses

a baby cow from scotland

and

came back to our room

where we met

 a friendly silverback gorilla

and an anthropologist

who told us all about him

and he shared

his celery snack

and one of

the best discoveries of all

was when we found out

all on our own

that we could

make secret forts

under the big kid’s science table

it was so great

to have a special day for science

but then every day

is really science day

if we just look around.

touch a scientist and you touch a child. – ray bradbury

and parents

shared their science

with the children

who were

in awe

of

all of it

and loved

the discovery

and

hands-on

exploration

and

so many

questions

and

trying to make some sense

of the world

around them

and

oils and  flowers and salts

to soothe them in the bath

 when they are tired or hurt

and

then

so much excitement

when

realizing

the world is filled

with endless possibilities

most people say that it is the intellect which makes a great scientist.

they are wrong: it is character.
