I'm going to be in Flagstaff until mid-July. If you pass through, I'd love to buy you a cup of coffee!


How exciting! I love following your adventures, Larry. This post reminds me of The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate. At the turn of the century, in Texas, an 11-year-old girl named Calpurnia loves to hang out with her grandfather in his "lab" (a shed behind the family's house) and collect and observe specimens. One day he gives her The Origin of Species and she begins keeping a notebook, following the scientific method, etc. She and her grandfather discover an unknown species of vetch and her grandfather goes on a trip to have it documented and named.

All of this is just to say that the book was delightful, and that your life makes for most intriguing and excellent reading as I count down the days until the final school bell rings :).

PS I still would love to get a list of the required reading for your museum class!
