But on Tuesday? Oh, it wasn't raining on Tuesday.
No. It was 72 degrees and my kids and Matthew
In the creek!
All I asked was that they keep their creek shoes on
(they each have designated creek shoes to protect their feet from sharp rocks.)
you're hooked. Once you've taken time to step in
the current of the creek, feel the rush of cool mountain water
("with shoes on, kids, please, keep your shoes on!!" pleads the mom)
and taken time to stop and stare into the water
and seen all the life and movement
and crayfish, especially,
and even caught something, with a net
well, you just want to step into every creek you see...
Even in January. If it's 72 degrees, of course.
