last friday i had the day off, almost. my boss called and asked me to work for four hours at the fieldtrip to dinosaur park. i went because it was only four hours and we took 90 kids. i realized that dinosaur park is the same every time you go. it felt exactly like the fieldtrip last year. i don't know how parents can buy a season pass there. anyway, here's my story... our class (3-4) went to a presentation in the media room. it was the traditional millions of years mumbo jumbo with lots of fossils for display. three things i found interesting, the fossils were actually casts of fossils, they weren't even real. second, the presenter asked the kids how they thought the dinosaurs were destroyed and no one said the flood (am i alone in that thought? i don't even know were i got that idea). thirdly, one of the teachers i was with asked me if i thought dinosaurs ever existed? i was blown away. i didn't know how to respond. i said, "you don't? " and she said, "no i don't think so" she compared them to the unicorn. anyway, what do you think? did dinosaurs really exist? i think at least the leviathan and bohemoth (not quite spelled correctly?) really did because it mentions them in the Bible but that doesn't mean they were dinosaurs like we think of it. i don't know, just a thought.
have a great day! thanks mat for helping me keep my once a week blog promise (almost).
