I heard from my son yesterday. He told me all about how he learned to take water samples and test them, and how they found phosphate traces probably from fertilizers that had washed into Chesapeake Bay from agricultural land in the watershed. He is also getting to know more of the indigenous species.
Good. He's excited about what he is learning.
He also told me how his room is the "party room" because he has a radio and the other kids are coming in to listen to music.
Good and bad. Making friends is great, but having the "party room" could have different implications in a few years.
