My DD is in the 5th grade this year!!! Part of the joy of being in 5th grade at her school is they have their own "wildlife/waterlife" area..So her first project was catching some critters out of the creek to take to school to add to their "pet" collection!!
DD checking out her favorite mini waterfall LOL!
Catching some snails
Looking for her next spot to go :)
She was so excited as we gathered her strainer and bucket and headed down the road to the creek!! Well much to our surprise the majority of the creek beds were dry!! But yet the sides of the road were flooded!! We had had lots of rain so I expected there to be some water LOL!! SO we went through some mud holes for a while and most of what she was catching were snails...So we decided to move on to another creek down the road!
"Look MOM I got Snails"!!!!
Side of the road puddle LOL!!
Down at this other creek it was beautiful!!! We just loved it! Crystal clear water flowing. Pink and green and corral rock in the bed of the creek!! Oh it was so awesome, we're very excited to go back again! So there we caught 1 bull frog, the only one that's been caught in the 5th grade thus far :) We caught 5 minnows, 1 baby fish, 3 baby crawdads, and a bunch of snails!! So we had a blast and found lots of neat critters!!
Seriously this is the creek!! Where in the heck is all of the water?!?!
She's loving the new spot we found!
Such a beautiful creek!
LOL!! I thought this was pretty cool!!
My friend, he kept flying around me :)
