Stuck in the Mud & Correct Science

This morning I am remembering a fun conversation I had with my grandsons a few years ago . . .

Friday morning my grandsons and I were talking about how they were going to be participating in the Mud Run the next day. My six-year old grandson asked me if he might get stuck in the mud. I laughed and told him I was sure he would not get stuck - just muddy and wet!

Then we talked about a time when I was a little younger than he was and got stuck in the mud. I was sure I would be stuck forever and I was certain I would sink all the way to China.

Then my two oldest grandsons told me I would not be able to sink all the way to China because I would suffocate first and then be burned up in the lava in the middle of the earth. As you can tell, my two grandsons are more science minded than I was!

I'm not sure knowing I'd suffocate and then burn up in lava instead of sinking all the way to China would have been comforting when I was stuck in the mud all those years ago! But I am glad my grandsons know the correct science.
