aaaah, the young paleontologist at work, with his trusty assistant (“she’s on work experience, she hasn’t finished university yet”) out on their first dig.
and there he stayed, pretty much all day. the assistant wandered off to look at books, watch tv, eat fruit, play vets, and much more. but he persevered till he had found all the bones of his dinosaur.
after a swim at 4pm, it was back to the museum basement to clean up their finds, and assemble the beast
a wooly mammoth!
thanks grandma for the fantastic and very popular birthday present! it was worth holding onto until the rain stopped. wet red clay is not as much fun for me to clean up 🙂
