I decided to take the kids to Indian Lake for some hiking on the last Friday before I go back to school. We hiked up the unglaciated hill to check out a little stone chapel built in 1857 and look out over the lake. Then we hiked back down to the glaciated prairie and lake area to watch birds and grasshoppers flit amongst the flowers. Jonas and Niles carried all our snacks and water bottles while speculating about the animals' behavior and which plants were native and which might be invasive. We've raised some real winners. :) I'm wishing summer would never end.
