The Tipping Point

There is a moment, or an occasion, when the scales tip in one direction or another.  The scales tipped and dumped me right into full blown nerd-dom where, let's face it, I've been hovering near for a good decade or two.  We took our impressionable offspring to... a gem and mineral show.  That isn't a typo.  Perhaps worse yet, we enjoyed it.  I died a little typing that.

Oh sure, it was in a dilapidated strip mall, and I had to act super pumped and convince the troops how awesome educational outings are, but once we got there it was pretty cool.  For a total of $1.50 spent, each kid got to fill an egg carton with 12 different types of rocks and fossils.  We spent about an hour touching and looking at all sorts of fossils and crystals and rocks from all over the world.

So there you have it... photographic proof of what we suspected all along.  We Krulls have a bit of nerd flowing through our veins.  And we are totally okay with that.
