More small things this summer. Today we walked in the stream behind our house. I'm embarrassed to admit that in the twins 5 1/2 years of life, I have never brought them down here. There is something about navigating through the brambles, and down a steep slope, with two wiggly toddlers that never appealed to me. But today, I officially promoted them to jungle explorers and off we went, with my oldest leading the way. We brought a net and a jar to see what we could find.
The crayfish, now named Larry, did not come home with us. Nor did the half dozen other creatures that the kids caught in their net. I hope.
