River Rats

River rats are exactly what my kids were on Monday. They stayed in that water for about 6 hours. I sat on the bank doing a little reading and feeling the cool breeze. They skipped rocks, made mud pies, skipped more rocks,saw snakes and went tubing down the river. What? Saw snakes? Yes, they saw 3 snakes during the day in the water. The snakes never got close to them so they just kept playing. Oh they were VERY aware of the snakes location the whole time. When they were not in the water they were catching fish. Between all 3 they caught 10 fish! Guess who had to take all those fish of the hook? Yep, good ole mom! One more thing to add to my to do list:) They made lots of new friends and I made a few myself.
