It’s a weird rock

We found this bizarre rock in the creek. It unfortunately looks like poop on top of worms? Worm castings? Some sort of nest? Lava drippings?

We have no idea but it is definitely a conversation starter.

See what I mean?

By the way, if you are looking for a way to keep kids (and adults) busy for a while after you’ve exhausted all explanations for weird rocks, give them one of these:


Sit back and watch as they teach themselves to whistle with it and you will have hours of entertainment. My girl that just couldn’t find a fossil was the first one to manage a good (and loud!) whistle through this. She was so proud.

Now I just need to pick up some nets for them to chase butterflies and our summer will be perfect. I know, I know, it’s still spring…let me dream. (Although these lovely sunny days can just keep coming. Back off, cold.)
