Frogs & Puppies

Yesterday our kids went to the farm and saw that there were hundreds of frogs around our new fish pond. Of course Avin and Finn each chose one to play with for the rest of the day. They named them (Sparky & Cassy), made houses for them, caught bugs for them to eat, fed them water and handled them A LOT!!! They put them safely in their homes for the night and excitedly ran out first thing this morning to find them still alive, we were pretty surprised!! They again played with them all day until around 3pm when we said they had to set them free.



At 4pm the kids walk in with a puppy!!! Who they have apparently named Joey. Our guard dog had puppies a few weeks ago and the kids often walk to the shed to check on them and play with them for a few minutes. This is the first time one has come home, I guess they were missing the frogs!! They said the guard said they could keep it overnight, but I think we'll walk the sweet little puppy back home and see what tomorrow brings!
