It Must be March...

Here's a funny moment from Kindergarten science this morning:

We were learning about rocks, sand, and soil when I had a fun bit of information for them.  "Does anyone know what the hardest rock in the whole wide world is?"  (Kindergarteners don't know what precious stones or minerals are, for that matter, so "rock" is the word for diamonds!)

Many hands went up with suggestions like "mountains," "boulders," "lava rock," and others, but my favorite answer came from little Vincent, who threw his arm excitedly into the air and shouted out before even being called on, "Shamrocks!"
