In the afternoons we had lots of fun! The kids spent an entire day with friends playing in the creek and finding critters. We have lots of toads and frogs in our yard and in the woods beyond. The one you see on the left is an American toad, I think. We found strings of toads eggs which are pictured to the right. (Frogs lay their eggs in clumps or clusters). I think the lizard we have living in our wood pile is an Eastern Fence Lizard. If my memory is correct I think the snake is a Northern Brown Snake.
We also spent a lot of time working and weeding the garden. The kids have their own sections of the garden and they each planted more lettuce and peas this week. We’ve even been enjoying a bit from our garden (lettuce and carrots).
I love the picture of them running down the hill with their butterfly nets!
Tomorrow (Friday) we have some fantastic plans with friends. More about that soon!
I hope you’ve had a great week too!
