Squeezy Gooey Eyeballs!!

Sarah is in 2nd grade and today she got to dissect an eyeball!  I was shocked when I heard about it.  Excited for sure, but shocked.  I don't remember doing this kind of thing when I was seven.  

When the note came home in her backpack I volunteered right away!  I didn't want to miss it.  I have fond memories of sheep's eyes and fetal pigs and the such.  I always liked dissecting things.  I must have been overly enthusiastic because Sarah's teacher asked me to help with another class also -- I guess they didn't have as many volunteers.  Also, I should note that I don't ever remember seeing so many DADDY volunteers before!  It was crazy to see how many daddies showed up for this one.

Sarah was a trooper.  She was lukewarm to, perhaps, disgusted about having to do this.  She was not thrilled.  However, once we started going, she was all over it.  She had lots of fun.  I think that she would have done a second eye if we would have let her.  I felt proud.

Enjoy!  Baaaaaaaaaaaa!
