A slice of AJM

Last evening, I went for a walk with daughter #2 (age 8) and she just talked my ear off about a guest speaker she’ll have next week: a scientist who specializes in “milking” snakes for their venom. She dominated the conversation with her excitement and curiosity about the event. I have always admired her thirst to learn about everything. I love that her love for learning and curiosity has not skipped a beat, and in fact has flourished among all of the challenges this year. It speaks volumes about the educators who teach her everyday. While I can’t say I share her affinity for the snake topic, I’m loving the human she is growing to be. AJM is going to change the world.

  1. I loved this! I think her and I would have gotten along at that age, I was always interested in that sort of stuff. And now as a teacher I’m thinking “wow! what a cool guest speaker- maybe they’ll come to my class!”. Thanks for sharing Kelly!

  3. My mouth watered, or perhaps it was venom, at the words “guest speaker”– Lucky for her and you to share 🙂

  4. I love seeing the way some things ignite kids’ excitement. Sometimes my daughter gets passionate about things I cannot connect with (like you with snakes), but I love it whenever she gets interested in something and can talk at length about it.
