My Nathan is quite the little “volcanologist.” He eagerly follows all news relating to volcanic activity around the world. He is very excited about the recent action from Chile’s Puyehue volcano.
I was just showing Nathan photos and we were talking about it. He commented on several technical aspects, like how likely a “pyroclastic flow” was (yes, he knows all about these things.) Then he started talking about the possibility that we, here in NH, would see ash cloud activity from the volcano. I asked him if he knew where Chili was – “Yes, Mom, it’s in South America.” and I told him it was unlikely to come all the way up to the northern hemisphere. He said “Well yes, but it’s possible a north-easterly win could blow some bits up here. And I would really love to see a gorgeous sky from it!”
Oh yes, my little future scientist is hard at work.
Do you ever sit back and wonder what your children will grow up to do? Of course you do. There are so many possibilities and seeing their personalities and likes and interests emerge and strengthen and change are fascinating to watch as a parent.
