Third Grade Scientists! 

Our lives have been so different, haven't they?  I hope you and your family are doing well. I'm fine, but I miss you.

I'm disappointed that we didn't have a chance to finish up our study of crayfish.  Even so, I am really proud of the work that EVERYONE did.
You completed great work in your science notebooks, learned a lot about being sensitive and gentle (and brave) with living creatures, and you took risks and built strong skills to work in teams.  I went in late one afternoon last week and collected all of the living creatures from the science lab.  I brought them home to take care of them. They crayfish especially did NOT appreciate the bumpy ride down my driveway, and they also don't really like being around my cat Skippy Jon Jones. I think it will be be best to release them in my creek.  When I do, I'll post a video here so that you can help me say, "Goodbye, sweet Crawdaddies!!!  Be FREE!!!"
