Frogs and Snails and Puppy Dog Tails

That’s what these little boys are made of! Though the only puppy dog tail we have around here belongs to our big dog who technically isn’t a puppy, our boys had a great day searching for and catching frogs. (We did see a few snails, too, but they just weren’t as enticing as the great frog hunt!)
The boys brought home a total of 8 frogs, 2 large, weird tad-pole looking things, and 1 actual tad-pole. One of the frogs still has a bit of a tail, and another has only 1 eye. Stone thinks we seriously need to make an eye patch for the one-eyed frog! We were laughing thinking of all the ways we could make a little tiny eye patch for our little tiny hopping friend. We decided fishing line and a soft green leaf might do the trick. Then Stone closed one of his eyes, and imitated what the frog might say, “Arrr, Matey, ribbit!”

It's fun to read your stories with your boys. I'm glad you are keeping a positive and adventuresome attitude. I'm sure you and your kids will enjoy looking back over these experiences when they're older.

Karen, this is so much fun reading about your nomadic adventures! Can't wait till your wild tribe makes it back out to SF again. ;-)
