some of you may have been reading this to remember the frog fiasco of 2006... when we had a frog lay eggs in our pool and decided to let them grow - having never seen tadpoles grow into frogs before. the long and short of it was, it took 2 months, and then i would find little frogs drowned in the pool! talk about traumatic! so with the help of our artist friend, andi, we scooped up hundreds and hundreds of froglets, put them in a rubbermaid container and drove them out to a pond where hopefully they would do better in a more natural environment.
aaaannnyhoooo - we woke up to frog eggs again 2 mornings ago! hooray! this time, we scooped them before they could hatch, and put them in an ice cream bucket, which just now we walked over to the little creek to set free. not as fun as watching them grow, but way more fun than watching them die!
