|T ball is Silas's chosen sport this season. He's totally into it. His cap is almost too small for his head. Some things never change.|

His other special class this semester is the Science of Water. Taught by one of his classmate's mom. She happens to be a wetland ecologist. The kids are having a great time learning about conservation and ecosystems and invertebrates of the streams. They even went on a field trip to UC Berkeley to collect specimens from the Strawberry Creek on campus and then check things out in a lab in the Valley Life Sciences Building. Just his cup of tea.
