Catch and Release

The morning of Mother's Day the kids were running around outside when I suddenly heard a squeal. Luke had found two toads. Since we have lived here, the kids have found plentiful snakes, but really haven't found any frogs or toads that I can remember. So Jack grabbed his gloves and brought them over to see me. The poor things, they didn't know what hit 'em.


Within moments one jumped on Jack's shoulder.


I was actually surprised they let them go as quickly as they did. Of course we did get the request to keep them...in a tank....inside the house. Mean-Mommy on Mother's Day of course said no. But it was a nice gift for my special day having the kids all content together for that short time.
