Morning:
OH NO MY EARLY MORNING STREAK !!! I'm going to be LATEEEEEEEEEE.
Jk, but oh I got a text to pick up someone... Of course, A.
Oh gosh, oh gosh the HOMEWORK.
Jk, I did that too. all 17 pages of that geology stuff and 2 pages of that Scientific Journal stuff. I actually voice recorded all the homework because I'm staring to become aware of different study methods and I am playing on my strength as an AUDITORY learner (See, Suzanne, having us take that test to see what kind of learning style we would prefer DID help!)...

Ooops, I'm going to be late, adios muchachos y muchachas.

After Training:

People discovered acorn cap whistling today.. enough said.

Learning about the geology and geography of the land was a bit overwhelming and quite frankly, went a bit over my head but I promise myself that I'll review it for the test. It was cool learning about the volcanic ash and T & B copied me by putting some on their face, smh (kidding).
Also learned today that there's no spider expert at the preserve. Guess I know what my future will entail!!! Jk, social worker & FBI come first. I'll do spider analysis in retirement.

BIRDS, BIRDS. I have the bird call app. Match made in heaven. Perfect day, it included identifying birds.I was the only one to find a bird. C'mon team! Look harder and make less noise! I spotted a Spotted Towhee. THE CUTEST. Not close enough for a picture. boo.

Overall, the lesson learned today was keep up with homework because there's a test next week.
Jk.
The lesson is be aware of your surroundings and there's something to learn everywhere you look, something to interact with and something you are influencing in one way or another. Kinda like our first walk and talk with Q's. #kerryiskool

P.S. S/O to Katy, she is super patient and I like how she knows so much in such a humbling way. Landscape sounds fun just because she presents it so well!
Also to Bonnie for just being a plain RAY OF SUNSHINE.
