Harry's predilection for throwing rocks into the stream next door has become a little too obsessive for my taste. It is, of course, something he probably learned from me, but now he's starting to seemingly fill up the stream with all the small and not so small rocks from around the area. What's worse, he seems to have become an inspiration for the neighbor's older kids who can lift and throw even larger stones into the stream. I suppose throwing rocks into streams and other bodies of water and watching the splashes and skips is the birthright of every boy, but perhaps we need to find some other bodies of water that aren't in the neighbor's front yard. They probably don't really mind, but it seems like a good idea not to get to a point when they do.
