We spent a few hours down at the creek on Sunday. It reminded the adults of their childhoods, while the girls were living it. My mom searched for pretty rocks. My brother went exploring with the kids, and my aunt looked for minnows. My husband stayed with me on the rocky bank and chatted. I like sitting by the creek, but I don't want to be in it.

Trogs? Something between a frog and a tadpole.
The girls were thrilled that they they found some crawdads and trogs.

Did I want to touch them?



  1. Aaaawww... your girls caught Mudflippers... the inbetween stage of a tadpole and frog. :D

    Here in Australia a Trog is the country term for a hoon; and they are people who do burnouts in cars.

    1. Mozette, I love your comments and insight into all things Australian. Mudflippers sounds like another term for people who do burnouts in cars. We could make a whole new dictionary!
