Charles worked with Son4 to create a crawdad trap from a 2-liter pop bottle, and it was set in the pond. The next morning, the boys strode into the kitchen, Son3 holding this in his palm, with a couple of fingers wrapped around the backside of it, and declaring, "I caught a crawdad!"

It looked pretty big to me, and as I moved closer I noticed its pincers looked strange. I looked at one, then the other, then back to the first, and with brow furrowed, I was about to ask what had happened to the critter, when Son3 admitted, "It's not a crawdad," then he picked it up by the tail end and held it rigidly upright -- a root.

Sure fooled me.

Thine, O Lord, is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty: for all that is in the heaven and in the earth is thine; thine is the kingdom, O Lord, and thou art exalted as head above all. ~I Chronicles 29:11
