It's fun spending time with kids because it's a good reminder to always be on the lookout for exciting little adventures. We recently went to a little lake to go swimming and there were a lot of rocks around the shore. One of the girls found a crayfish claw, which meant they were living in the water. John's method of catching crayfish is to feel around the bottom edges of the rocks until one gets pinned in between his fingers and the rocks. Then when we have a few of them the girls can build little ponds and streams on the shore for their new little pet to live in. It's a great time to learn about exoskeletons and crustaceans, along with a nice little lesson on how to hold a crayfish without getting pinched!
