April 28, 2010 King of the Mountain
Yesterday our boy ran into the house so excited. He was grinning from ear to ear. It wasn’t because he got a new video game, or that he found some candy under his bed (that would require looking). It was because there was a HUGE mound of dirt by our house.
Those massive chunks of clay are as hard as rocks, which reminds me. No matter how much I tell them to stay off the dirt, every time I turn around they are outside, playing on the dirt piles. (At least it’s not muddy.)
This is what they found: lava rocks. Last time I checked, I didn’t remember seeing any volcanoes in Oklahoma.
Update: The lava rocks were NOT found in the dirt. I was really beginning to wonder. They were found in a nearby parking lot.
