58. If you want the answer, ask the question.

You can find inspiration from others but determination is solely your responsibility.  ~Dodinsky

Pumpkin,

This picture was taken as we began the adventure that would become your Science project, Coastal Georgia.

Our first stop was the visitor's center in Saint Simons. We had a list of the objectives we wanted you to learn about - foods, tides, birds, animals, sea turtles, moon, marsh and much, much more!

You were timid - you didn't want to approach the visitor's center employee and ask about some of the items we were looking for. 

When you finally did ask, the visitor's center employee was able to gather everything you needed - but the materials were not out for display. Had you not asked, we would have never gotten the yummy recipe for Brunswick Stew or the Low Country boil, would never have read about the knobbed welk, or knew why Saint Simons was called a barrier island. 

Questions are like keys that open the door to wisdom.

How will you learn if you don't ask? (yes, this is the phrase I'm constantly repeating to you!)

If you want the answer, ask the question.
