On Monday Night, this guy taught us about the creation of the world. But not just that. He pulled out a geological map of the Salt Lake Valley he made for his thesis project. Then the man explained how blessed we are to be here because of the soils and rocks that the area is made of. God saved this place for a long time before we all got here, he said. He let the land soak under Lake Bonneville and then he let it drain leaving all sorts of deposits that solidified over time. And now we have cheap gravel for purchase. That's basically what I learned. I guess when we talk about God separating the land from the water, I usually don't consider all that must have entailed like Sandy Silts and Silty Clays and Fat Clays and Silty Sands and other dirt. (Did I miss some, Dan?)
After the discussion, we colored. Maggie didn't feel like dressing up for the occasion. She rarely feels like dressing at all, let's be honest. I'm just happy I'd been able to wrestle her into a diaper.
