Today, my solo cup is filled with Roly Poly bugs.
Spent a lot of time today editing a blog post for a client. The article got me thinking a lot about my childhood and the things we did when I was a kid. Felt an immediate connection as the author wrote about building forts in the woods and finding roly poly bugs under tree logs. All of course to demonstrate how his backyard was a place of great discovery and lead into the importance of hands-on, investigation-based learning for K-8 science students. But for me, a real story that resonated with my inner child.
The timing couldn't have been better since I am heading down to Ozark, Alabama (the place where I grew up), next Saturday. This is where I had many great adventures as a kid and I'm looking forward to seeing the mounds of red clay and indulging in some good ole' southern hospitality. The coincidence of the client's approach made the editing experience enjoyable and natural. In addition, provided another stepping stone to getting to know the people that I am working for.
