It's been pretty crummy around here lately...overcast, off-and-on showers, and cold! So today, one of my little paleontologists decided to take me on a dig...and we had a blast! I must apologize in advance for the poor photo quality in this post...he was so excited about his excavation that I couldn't get him to sit still for my snaps :)
Chisels, mallets, and brushes were flyin'...and so was the debris! This kit was a little different from others we have done in the past. Rather than being comprised of a sandy material, the "rock" was made of very course, almost pebble like rocks...Yikes! We were able to expose both of the rib cages and a pelvis today, but I think when we tackle it again tomorrow, we'll be hangin' on the covered deck to keep the interior of the house clean. Sure am glad the set came with a pair of goggles for my little man...too bad there wasn't an extra pair for Mama!
