Girl Discovers 475-Million-Year-Old Fossil At Tennessee Lake.
An Amazing Day
This young girl was on a fishing trip with her family. She had no idea what was in store for her. She was about to make an ancient discovery.
We've all heard the tales of the Lake Monster and the Black Lagoon. But people don't really ever find such things, right? Or so we thought. An eleven-year-old from Tennessee made an incredible discovery. While on a fishing trip with her family, Ryleigh saw something in the water, but she couldn't really tell what it was from a distance. As soon as she got closer, she realized something was staring back at her. Once she understood what it was, she was in shock.
A Day For Fishing
Ryleigh Taylor is home-schooled by her parents. She's a pretty normal kid, except for one thing. She made a scientific discovery that veteran scientists can't help but be envious of. Ryleigh has always been a lover of learning and she also appreciates being taught outside. Despite all of that, she never expected to make such an incredible discovery. One day, she went out on a fishing trip with her family, but no one could have predicted that her life would be changed forever.

One day, Ryleigh didn't really feel like having class. She loved learning, but she was still a kid. Her mom, Tammy, needed to come up with a plan of action. Parents are typically put in awkward positions when they teach their children at home. But Tammy came up with an incredible plan. She would bring Ryleigh fishing and use it as an opportunity to learn about the great outdoors. It turned about to be one of the best things she's ever done for Ryleigh.
A New Approach
Tammy spent a lot of time teaching outside, but the lake was a new destination. She planned on taking her family to Douglas Lake. Even though it was a great teaching opportunity, it could prove to be problematic. A fishing trip would give Ryleigh a lot of distractions, and she was already a little bit absent-minded. And there wasn't a lot of shade on the shoreline, but Tammy was done with doubting her teaching abilities. She was already getting slack from other parents.
Getting Backlash From Other Moms
Parenting is by no means an easy job, especially when you have an unorthodox way of raising them. Unfortunately, the mainstream community looks down on homeschooling children. The other moms passed a lot of judgment on Tammy. Her ability to effectively teach her child was constantly being questioned. She was becoming exhausted from all of the criticism, and she was close to giving up. She almost sent Ryleigh to public school, but the world is grateful that she didn't.
