Biology: The Worm

This week, my daughter had her first dissection lab in Biology.

Do you see her excitement?


"The Worm." Dum dum DUM!!!!!

She was really not happy about having to TOUCH the worm, and feel for its little bristles.

But once she got over the initial horror.....on with the dissection.

This would be a dissected worm.

Sometimes in life, we have to do unpleasant things. Things we might not want to do, or may not be accustomed to. Sometimes they are things we dread.

But the end result, is learning, growing and becoming a stronger person for it.

Dissecting a worm may not seem like that big of a deal, but within the process lies that life lesson.

If we don't do what we don't want to do, how will we ever achieve the things in life we do desire?

Spanish Moss

In this part of North Carolina, you don't really see Spanish Moss. We are just too far north for it I guess. But in this one place, it is everywhere.

This is in an historic cemetery in downtown Fayetteville, NC.

I just find this stuff so beautiful and surreal.

Another thing you will find in this old cemetary, are things like this.

And this.
