Another critter encounter.

One day last month Sylvie came running back in the house from the front porch yelling something about a turtle. That little girl has some seriously good eyes. She can spot the tiniest of airplanes forever away in the sky, and a dull green turtle in the grass way far away from the house. We spent a lot of time with our new friend, but he was too shy to peek out of his shell while we were near.

Elliot claimed the turtle as his buddy, and named him (her?) Buddy.

This tiny caterpillar was hanging out in front of the turtle, and the kids were fascinated!

Elliot made a salad for his new buddies!

Around the yard that same day -
