My kid went on Native American historical digs about 1400 miles from here. She wanted field experience so she wouldn't end up classified as strictly a lab type, as she was all about lab foresensics for archeology. I think that I have one of the few kids that hung out at an autopsy lab when she was 15 and 16. Took a while to get her to not discuss her favorite autopsies at dinner without hurting her feelings.

Despite her firm plans to work in archeology or anthropology, she changed her mind and now works in a genetics lab.
Those are great stories. Your daughter sounds like a real trooper, strong in science. Acorn doesn't fall far does it?
