A Lake???

This was the response I got when I told the boys we were heading to a lake for the day(Tuesday) with friends.  They have never swam in a lake before and were a bit concerned of how clean it would be.  Don't things animals live in a lake?  Is there stuff on the bottom??  They were valid questions but I assured them that people do it all the time and that, I had in fact swam many days in a small lake growing up and I survived. Once there they forgot all their worries and spent the day just enjoying themselves.

the hours were spent building waterways, ponds, dams, mountains, volcanoes and such

I sat listening to discussions like:
how about this.....
maybe we should try......
what do you think......

They were problem solving , critically thinking, even hypothesizing and testing, changing their models to produce better results......they were sand scientists!
