Creek Stomping

One of the greatest pleasures of our sleepy Indiana town is the preponderance of shallow, slate-bottomed creeks, rife with tiny crinoid fossils and medium-sized geodes, perfect for wading in and watching minnows and splashing away from crayfish (if you want to know why our sleepy Indiana town is blessed with these natural features, well then you should read Willow's report on Indiana):

It makes for a fabulous Wednesday field trip, and the fact that my two filthy, exhausted girls just want to sprawl quietly on the rug for a couple of hours afterwards and listen to audiobooks doesn't hurt much, either.
