A 40year old female living in New England..... rambling about parenting 4 kids,homeschooling, autism, spiritual abuse, relatives, politics and any other thought that passes through this old brain.
I mostly ramble on "in the garden"
Recently there has been some talk amongst the homeschooling group about finding frog eggs and watching the life cycle of a frog. After hearing peepers make loud noises for the last month, I decided that it might be "time".
We headed down into the back of our yard and while gathering frog eggs, found a spotted turtle!
Jason, my 20 year old, is quite the amphibian lover. He collects creatures in his room that include camiens, turtles, and snakes. He has desired to find a spotted turtle in the wild for as long as I can remember.
So with the cell phone in hand, I phoned him, "THERE IS A SPOTTED TURTLE IN OUR BOG!"
He thought I was confused and was only seeing a painted turtle. HA! He forgets who taught him how to find turtles, frogs and things from the wild.
We were all excited to find this spotted turtle. We believe it is an adult male which means they are probably colonized in our bog. We released him, as he is ENDANGERED. Go Make more babies little spotty!
Here are some photos of the adventure; gathering the frog eggs.......and finding Spotty.
