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.
