two boys and a creek

Going to Grammie's house is kind of like going to camp. There's a creek to muck around in, little fish to catch, field trips, and a happy camp director full of plans for activities. We spent some time one morning moving rocks for Grammie's garden. Then we caught what we thought were some tadpoles. Now that we've got them home I'm pretty darn sure they are fish. Oh well.

Being outside with my boys makes me a happier mom. I can see the ideas and curiosity bubbling in their minds. They don't need anyone or anything to entertain them. Nature is enough.

Finn used some of his allowance to make a nice little home for these guys. I guess we'll see what exactly they turn into.
