career day!

Rilyn had career day at school today and my dad, Dr. Richard Erickson, came to speak about being a doctor (specifically a gastroenterologist) to 60 first graders.  What a sweet grandpa!  I remember when he spoke to my elementary school 20+ years ago!

Rilyn and her grandpa!
showing them their insides!

Grandpa had to let his granddaughter come up to the front to participate! Rilyn got to look in an endoscope. You can see everyone wanted a turn!

My dad is showing the kids on his laptop a view of an endoscopic camera that is

going down someones throat and into their stomach.

I love the girl in the front row’s expression!  Ewwwwww!

Thanks dad, Rilyn was so proud of her grandpa!
