Summer officially began for us a week ago with the kids' last day of school. I wanted to think of something fun to do to kick off summer break. I decided to let the kids go play in a creek. I realize I need to let go a little more, and let them have fun and get dirty. Sometimes cleaning up a mess is totally worth them getting along and not fighting.

They took along their "crawdad catching gear."

Drew was a little alarmed when he looked in the water and saw a crawdad. He yelled, "LOBSTER!"

He brought along his goggles... get a closer look.
Mallory had a blast playing in the dirt/pebbles/sand.

The ruined shorts were worth it.
