Beaver Dam

We were driving home one day, when suddenly Mister said, “Mom, look!  It’s a beaver dam.”

Skeptically, I allowed my gaze to follow where he pointed.  Beaver Dam

“Well, I’ll be!” I said, “It is a beaver dam.”

“Will you take a picture?” he asked.

So, I pulled over and snapped a couple of pictures with my Canon ELPH, which I keep in my purse for moments such as these.

Beaver Dam

When I got back in the van, I asked, “Hey buddy, how did you know that was a beaver dam?  We haven’t talked about those in school yet.”

“I learned about them on Wild Animal Baby Explorers,” he said.  “Benita is a beaver, and her house is a beaver dam.  Did you know beavers can swim? and they are great builders?”

It amazes me the things he remembers!  Sponges.  Children are like sponges, I tell ya, they absorb everything!

  1. While walking around the lake near our home, I’ve heard adults see a beaver and comment, “Oh my God! Look at that big rat!”

  2. That is so cool that you got to see a beaver dam! It is amazing how much kids absorb though eh?

  5. I can’t decide which is cooler….the fact that you snapped the picture or that he knew what it was.

  10. That’s great that he knew what it was. Since beavers ruined the creek on my in-law’s farm my kids know all about beavers. My inlaws had to call someone and have the beavers relocated.
