The Crayfish Named Peace


This little lady came to our house the last week of school.  She was one of 8 who were studied by Malachi’s 4th grade class.  I told Malachi he could bring them all home and we’d release them into our creek, but she was the only one not spoken for.  So we kept her for a week or so and then said goodbye.


Malachi was hopeful she’d find a mate in our creek.


And just yesterday he found a dead baby crayfish on the banks of our creek.  I don’t know enough about crayfish to even know if it could have been hers.


She was so happy to swim around.



This is definitely a more peaceful life, than sitting on our kitchen counter.
